The Patriots hosted free-agent DE Darrion Scott at Gillette Stadium today.
The 6-foot-3, 289-pound Scott entered the NFL as a third-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 2004. He has played in 48 career games, with 28 starts. His most productive seasons, stats-wise, came in 2005 and 2006 when he totaled 104 tackles and 9.5 sacks.
The Ohio State alum, who is 26, played in just four games last season due to a fractured foot. He later drew attention with some negative off-the-field headlines.
