Patriots Trade Jacob Hollister To Seahawks

The Patriots have agreed to trade third-year tight end Jacob Hollister to the Seahawks pending a physical, league sources tell Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The Patriots will receive a 2020 conditional seventh-round pick in return. 

The Seahawks had four tight ends on their 90-man roster, plus incoming undrafted free agent Justin Johnson. But, with Will Dissly coming off a knee injury, the Seahawks felt the need for some reinforcement.

Enter Hollister, who has just eight catches to his credit across two injury-filled seasons in New England. The Seahawks aren’t necessarily expecting a ton out of Hollister, but could provide valuable depth support if he manages to stay healthy.

    Ok, so we don’t have any big name TE, I don’t remember seeing the Pats draft one, so who is going to play the position?

    Looks like they are very high on that LaCosse kid they signed from Denver, but this deal has to be a pre-cursor to a corresponding move at the TE Position. The TE plays a huge role in the Josh McDaniels offensive scheme so something else must be in the works here.

    I would have loved to see them sign UDFA Logan Parker (S. Utah) or Dax Raymond (Utah State), but In Bill We Trust!

      So that’s why they have Sefarian-Jenkins. Kid tore it up as a receiving tight end at The UW
