The New England Patriots have done it again. 

After a big day yesterday, on the opening of the league's free agency period, the Pats have worked their magic to make another move to strengthen the team's defense.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Pats have acquired edge pass rusher Kony Ealy and a third round pick from the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a second round pick.

With veteran Chris Long confirming that he will not be back next season and no certainty that the team will retain Jabaal Sheard, Ealy will likely be slated to play a large role in the New England front seven in 2017.

Seems like another pretty clear win, win, win for Trader Bill and his team.
