Patriots reach terms with Fanene

The Patriots will sign former Bengals DT Jonathan Fanene, according to league sources.

The Patriots are fond of veteran defensive linemen, and Fanene, 29, is a fit to play inside at tackle in the team’s nickel packages to take pressure off Vince Wilfork. Fanene played in all 16 games for the Bengals last season, his seventh in Cincinnati, registering 6.5 sacks.
