Patriots free agent Dane Fletcher to visit with the Buccaneers

Linebacker Dane Fletcher, who has spent the past four seasons in New England, will visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tuesday night, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.

As the Patriots’ backup middle linebacker, Fletcher played sparsely through the past two seasons after recovering from an ACL tear. He missed the entire 2012 season and was a core special teams member in 2013 while contributing on dime and nickel packages on defense. He totaled 26 tackles, 2 sacks, and a forced fumble in 2013.
