Linebacker Wesley Woodyard will visit Patriots

The Patriots may seek to replace middle linebacker Brandon Spikes with one of the more prominent linebackers in free agency, soon-to-be former Denver Bronco Wesley Woodyard.

Woodyard told the Denver Post’s Brandon Krisztal that he would visit New England among other places.

Woodyard, a seven-year pro, recorded 84 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and an interception for the Broncos last season.

Hat tip to Doug Kyed at NESN for spotting this first.

UPDATE: Woodyard visited Tennessee after New England.
