According to the NFL Network via Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, the New England Patriots will be giving free agent offensive lineman Chad Clifton a physical this week.

“The New England Patriots are examining all options in an effort to improve their offensive line. NFL Network has learned that the team will give tackle Chad Clifton a physical this week,” wrote Rosenthal.

The Patriots had a lot of problems with their offensive line during last week’s preseason game.  If they want to keep quarterback Tom Brady healthy, they’re going to need to fix things.
