The New England Patriots have had an outstanding offseason. They have strengthened both sides of the ball and are in position to make a run in the playoffs next season. However, there are still holes remaining on the roster. These holes can be filled by certain players left in free agency. Here are five free agents the Patriots should still sign.

New England lacks linebacker depth and could use a sure tackler like Desmond Bishop. He should come cheap and he can drop down into coverage at times as well.

Safety is one of the biggest needs for the Patriots. They could use a nice, veteran presence to solidify that already improved secondary. Chris Clemons would be an excellent addition next to Devin McCourty.

Defensive end is certainly the Pats' biggest need. If they want to win a Superbowl, then obtaining players who can get after the QB is essential. Anthony Spencer is the best DE available and would improve the pass rush immediately.

2. Shaun Phillips

Shaun Phillips would be a terrific signing for New England. He is a veteran presence who racked up 11.5 sacks in 2014. He is technically a LB who can rush the passer on the edge.

Wide receiver isn't their biggest need, but the Pats could use another big target for Tom Brady. If Britt got it together, he would be a beast on the football field. He's 6-foot-3 and has a lot of speed. He would be a stud in the red zone for New England. The addition of Britt would assure the Pats are a top offense in the league.
