Easley lost the last three games of the regular season and the run through the playoffs to a knee injury, which did not require surgery. He appears destined to be part of a rotation at his position, given the departure of Vince Wilfork.
"I'm still in the rehab process, kind of," he told SiriusXM NFL radio. "I'm running and everything, so by the time training camp comes I'll be fully ready to go."
Easley played in 11 games last season, but started just two and contributed to 10 tackles.
Easley, a first-round pick in 2014, finished last season on injured reserve. He finished his rookie campaign with 10 total tackles and a sack.
Easley has been a virtual non-factor this year with just seven tackles and one sack in 11 games.
