Report: LB Wesley Woodyard headed to New England for free agent visit

03.11.14 at 1:23 pm ET

According to a report out of Denver, linebacker Wesley Woodyard is on his way to New England for a free agent meeting with the Patriots.

The 6-foot, 233-pound linebacker, who was undrafted out of Kentucky in 2008, has blossomed into a key part of the Denver defense since he arrived in the NFL. The 27-year-old, who was named a captain by the Broncos last year, compiled 84 tackles, three forced fumbles and four pass breakups in 2013. In last year’s regular-season meeting between the Patriots and Broncos, Woodyard had an impressive game, finishing with 15 total tackles (seven solo) and a forced fumble.

In the past, Patriots coach Bill Belichick has said Woodyard is an “excellent” linebacker who — along with fellow Denver linebacker Danny Trevathan — is on the “upper end on the speed scale.”

Woodyard has also reportedly drawn interest from the Cowboys.
