The Patriots' defensive line will look a bit different next season, as another member of the unit is on the move.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Malcom Brown has signed a three-year deal with the Saints worth $15 million.

Selected in the first round of the 2015 draft, Brown has missed just four games in his career. Over his four years in the league, he's totaled 8.5 sacks, but is known for stopping the run.

The Patriots declined his fifth-year option last offseason.

Right now, the Patriots just have Lawrence Guy, Adam Butler, Frank Herron and Ufomba Kamalu as defensive lineman signed for 2019, so a player or two likely will be added.
