According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Patriots have inked former West Virginia inside linebacker Anthony Leonard.
An undrafted free agent, Leonard had 65 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble as a senior last year. He stands at 6-foot-1 and 246 pounds. He can play both inside and outside, though he was projected to be an inside linebacker after his college career. Scouting reports note that his tackling is his biggest strength.
