Like this player at those dollars, similar to Sheard's Deal 3 years ago (2/11)
How many games does he get to line up against a below replacement level LT like when he recorded 6 of his 9 sacks in one game? Honestly Clayborn and Hill were at the top of my do not sign list. I'm sure they will work out better than Chandler and Haynesworth thogh.

I think people expecting a ton of sacks will probably be disappointed.
Clayborn should be solid against the run and bring some pressure. Can slide inside as well.

He should fit in well with the Patriots.

While he might fail, because failure is always an option, my guess is that the patriots' evaluations go beyond sacks, which are like evaluating relivers based on the number of saves, which good teams don't do.
