Chris Hogan Signs Patriots’ Offer Sheet

11:26am: Hogan has signed the offer sheet from the Patriots, according to John Wawrow of The Associated Press. Assuming that move becomes official today, the Bills will have five days to match.

THURSDAY, 7:48pm: New England’s offer sheet to Hogan is expected to arrive Friday morning and be one the Bills will have a difficult time matching, according to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News (on Twitter).

5:20pm: The Patriots are believed to be preparing an offer sheet for Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan, a source tells Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter). Hogan is a restricted free agent who has drawn significant interest from New England this week. Chris Hogan (vertical)

The Pats could sign the wide receiver/special-teamer to an offer sheet that the Bills would have five days to match.

Pats head coach Bill Belichick has done serious research on Hogan, so much so that he knows that Hogan could serve as a backup punter should the need ever arise. That versatility is a plus for Belichick though, of course, it’s not one of his main draws.

In 2015, Hogan hauled in 36 catches for 450 yards and two touchdowns. The New Jersey native had a similar season in 2014 for Buffalo when he caught 41 passes for 426 yards and four scores.

    This feels a lot like when the Patriots signed Welker to an offer sheet

    Go get Welker back for cheap, sign Weddle and Gerhart. Just cuz they’re all white

    If they can get Weddle and Morris they would look fantastic going into the draft though they always do. I know it’s early but who’s their competition in the AFC next season?
