The Patriots are expected to sign defensive back Vincent Fuller, according to multiple reports. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder was a fourth-round pick of Tennessee in 2005, and has played in 76 games, making five starts over the course of his career. His best year came in 2009, when he made 34 tackles (27 solo) and had one sack, seven passes defensed and three interceptions with the Titans. He played one game with Detroit this season, but suffered an elbow injury and was placed on injured reserve. Shalise Manza Young of Boston.com first reported the news.
