Belichick goes scouting while on vacation,and New England signs another free agent cornerback. Plus, Pacman likes the idea of being a Pat, man.

After losing three defensive backs via free agency, the Patriots have just added their fourth in the same manner.

Former Jaguars first-round pick **Fernando Bryant** has signed with New England, reuniting him with his old defensive coordinator from Jacksonville, Dom Capers, who's now the secondary coach and special assistant on New England's staff.

But the Pats may not be done shopping for secondary support. According to a report in today's Boston Herald, Adam "Pacman" Jones of the Tennessee Titans may be interested in joining the club.

"If Tennessee decides there is going to be a trade, New England would be a very good fit for us," Jones' agent and attorney, Manny Arora, revealed. "The reason for that is great leadership, strong coaching and a winning tradition ... The track record the Patriots have in giving players a fresh start would be a great fit."

Problem is, Jones is still serving a suspension for his off-the-field behavior and has been told by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that his situation will be resolved prior to training camp. But that's not early enough, it seems, for Jones.

"We're going to petition for him to be reinstated prior to the draft," said Arora.

Stay tuned ...

Meanwhile, during his annual trek to Florida for a little R&R, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick found some time to squeeze in a little pre-Draft planning.

According to a Tampa Tribune article, Belichick paid a visit to the University of South Florida in Tampa to get a first-hand look at two prospects: corners Trae Williams and Mike Jenkins.
