Report: Former Patriots DE Adrian Clayborn heading back to Atlanta Falcons


After helping power the Patriots' pass rush to a Super Bowl win in 2018, former Pats defensive end Adrian Clayborn is apparently headed back to the Atlanta Falcons.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Clayborn has agreed to terms with the Falcons, whom he played for from 2015-2017.

Clayborn, 30, was drafted in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, playing for the Bucs for four seasons before heading to Atlanta.

Now Clayborn is headed back.

Clayborn joins a mass exodus of Patriots coaches and players following the 2018 season.

Clayborn was released by the Patriots upon request in March.
