Patriots don't want repeat of '13 at DT

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The first thought that came to mind with the Patriots' two trades on Tuesday -- acquiring defensive linemen Ben Bass (Cowboys) and Jerel Worthy (Packers) -- was that Bill Belichick is being proactive to avoid another repeat of 2013 when a run of injuries left the team thin at the heart of its defense.
