Patriots' Adrian Clayborn: Participating in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (quad) has returned to action in the Patriots' OTAs, Andy Hart of the Patriots' official site reports.

Clayborn tweaked his quad during an offseason workout but he appears to be over the issue and hasn't been limited in the team's practice sessions, where he's been operating as a starting defensive end.

Patriots' Adrian Clayborn: Injures quad during offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claybord recently tweaked his quad during offseason workouts, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

It doesn't sound like Clayborn is dealing with anything serious. While he might miss the third phase of the Patriots' offseason workouts this month, there doesn't seem to be any concern about his availability for the start of training camp in late July.

Patriots' Adrian Clayborn: Signs two-year deal with New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn agreed to terms on a two-year, $12 million contract with New England on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Clayborn will be a welcomed addition to a Patriots defense that finished tied for the seventh-most sacks in 2017 with 42. The imposing defensive lineman is coming off a season in which he led the Falcons with 9.5 sacks, surpassing his previous career-best of 7.5 sacks from his rookie campaign. New England hopes that Clayborn can help set the edge in run support as well, with their defense surrendering over 4.6 yards per carry last season.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Nets 9.5 sacks in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn racked up 21 tackles, 9.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one touchdown over 16 games in 2017.

Clayborn smashed his previous career high of 7.5 sacks from his rookie season in 2011 en route to earning Pro Football Focus' eight-highest grade as a pass rusher among 4-3 defensive ends. He arguably had the best IDP performance of the season among all NFL defenders thanks to his Week 10 domination of the Cowboys when Reed racked up six sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. However, he wasn't a consistent fantasy option by any means considering he only netted three sacks over his 14 other games and also hasn't topped 22 tackles in any of his three seasons with Atlanta. Altogether, it's likely he'll be overvalued in 2018 drafts and should best be viewed as a middling IDP option among defensive linemen.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Free from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hamstring) is not listed on the Falcons' final injury report heading into Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Clayborn missed Thursday's practice, but has subsequently practiced in limited fashion to close out the week. It looks like the exercising caution with their sack specialist. Look for him to resume his usual workload Sunday barring any setbacks.
