Patriots signed DB Jabrill Peppers, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract. Peppers tore his ACL in Week 7 but is expected to be ready for training camp. The Patriots have always had a thing for versatile secondary pieces and Peppers fits the bill. Behind Kyle Duggar, Devin McCourty, and Adrian Phillips on the depth chart at safety, Peppers' might find playing time easier to come by at corner on paper -- the truth is the Pats run their safeties into nickel roles fairly often. He also has returned kicks.
