  Patriots | Top prospect TEs meet with Pats    Mon Apr 22, 01:15 AM

Iowa TE Noah Fant and Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger have scheduled or have take pre-draft visits with the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are looking for tight end help even though they added Matt LaCosse and Austin Seferian-Jenkins in free agency earlier this offseason. We won't be shocked if they add a tight end in the first or second round of the 2019 NFL draft.

  Patriots | Tom Brady excelled on third down    Fri Apr 19, 01:21 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady tied Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes with nine big-time throws on third-and-long situations in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Brady is still near the top of his game. Quarterbacks earn their keep in the red zone and on third down. Brady is excellent in both areas and should continue to be so in 2019.

  Patriots | New England set to sign Demaryius Thomas     Tue Apr 16, 04:50 PM

Free-agent WR Demaryius Thomas (Texans) reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the New England Patriots on Tuesday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Reunited with Josh McDaniels in New England, Thomas will fit nicely in their short passing game...provided he makes the 53-man roster. The veteran is four months removed from the second Achilles' injury of his career and no lock for the start of the regular season.

  Patriots | New England meets with two QB prospects    Mon Apr 15, 07:09 PM

Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham and Northwestern QB Clayton Thorson recently met with the New England Patriots, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are looking for the heir apparent to Tom Brady...again. That could be Stidham, seen as a second-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Stidham has pro tools and does a good job working through progressions. Thorson is considered a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's athletic but not a polished passer.

  Patriots | Tom Brady not expected this week    Mon Apr 15, 09:47 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is not expected to report to offseason conditioning this week, but he's rumored to have bulked up this offseason.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Brady missed all of the voluntary work last offseason but he showed up when workouts were mandatory. That's the plan he'll follow in 2019.

  Patriots | Parris Campbell a fit for Pats?    Thu Apr 11, 11:20 PM

Ohio State WR Parris Campbell is 'Bill Belichick's type of guy,' according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, and Brandt believes the New England Patriots could target Campbell in the 2019 NFL Draft after missing out on Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries and Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley in free agency.

Footballguys view: Campbell is looking like a first-round pick (and certainly a first-round talent) in the 2019 NFL draft. He's incredibly dynamic as an athlete and is dangerous with the ball in his hands. The Patriots are looking to add weapons to the passing game and Campbell would be a great fit.

  Patriots | Jalen Hurd visits    Thu Apr 11, 05:07 PM

Baylor WR Jalen Hurd met with the New England Patriots Wednesday, Sept. 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Hurd is a big and physical player with the athleticism to damage a defense after the catch. He's used as a big slot and also at a running back, measuring in at 6'5" 226 pounds. Hurd had a procedure on his knee in December and is likely a sixth- or seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Patriots | N.E. hosting pass-catching prospects    Thu Apr 11, 01:04 PM

2019 NFL Draft prospects WR A.J. Brown (Mississippi), WR Deebo Samuel (South Carolina) and TE Noah Fant (Iowa) are among a group visiting the New England Patriots on Thursday, April 11.

Footballguys view: All of these prospects are interesting...and they become even more interesting if the Patriots add them. Brown is often overshadowed by college teammate D.K. Metcalf but he shouldn't be as he has strong hands and is a great runner after the catch. Samuel knows how to use his frame to box out smaller defenders down the field. Fant is arguably the best receiving tight end in this class and would make a great weapon for the Patriots.

  Patriots | Jace Sternberger visits    Mon Apr 8, 09:01 PM

Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger met with the New England Patriots Monday, April 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Sternberger has a good athletic profile and gets open with ease. He's got strong hands and a nose for the end zone. Sternberger is a willing blocker but that's not his forte. We should see him go off the board in the mid rounds of the 2019 NFL draft.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady appears likely to skip the voluntary workouts this offseason like he did last year.

  Patriots | N'Keal Harry to visit    Fri Mar 29, 04:55 PM

Arizona State WR N'Keal Harry is scheduled to meet with the New England Patriots before the 2019 NFL Draft, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Harry is set to be a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's big (6'2" 228 pounds) and has fantastic run-after-the-catch ability. Harry can make difficult grabs and NFL.com's Lance Zierlein call the Arizona State prospect a 'back shoulder boss.'

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski's door still open?    Mon Mar 25, 09:59 AM

Former New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Monday, March 25, that if Patriots QB Tom Brady called Gronk and said the team needed him at some point next year, he could come back to play a few games.

Footballguys view: We just hope this isn't the end for Gronkowski. Perhaps he gets away from the game, starts feeling healthier and misses Brady. Don't be surprised if Fantasy GMs in deep leagues stash Gronkowski as a last-round pick (like they did with Barry Sanders or Calvin Johnson) just hoping he will play again.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski announces retirement    Sun Mar 24, 06:06 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement from the NFL Sunday, March 24.

Footballguys view: That's a wrap for one of the best to ever play the game at his position. Gronkowski was flat out dominant when healthy and is certainly bound for the Hall of Fame, likely as a first-ballot nominee. Fantasy GMs loved him as a TE1 for years and now the Patriots have a huge hole at the position. Guys like Jacob Hollister, Matt LaCosse and Stephen Anderson will compete for the starting job...and the Patriots should be looking to add a top tight end in the draft.

  Patriots | Will Grier expected to meet with N.E.    Thu Mar 21, 12:22 PM

Former West Virginia QB and 2019 NFL Draft prospect Will Grier is expected to have a pre-draft visit with the New England Patriots, but one team beat reporter says he's be surprised if the Patriots used an early-round pick on him.

Footballguys view: Grier is seen as a second-round pick but he could sneak into the late first round of the 2019 NFL draft. The Patriots have the 32nd overall pick in the first round and could take Grier with the last pick on the first day of the draft to groom him as the heir apparent to Tom Brady.

Free-agent TE Matt LaCosse (Broncos) agreed to terms with the New England Patriots Thursday, March 14, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: LaCosse is an interesting 'Y' tight end to keep an eye on in crazy deep dynasty formats. He did work his way into some playing time with the Broncos last year. He caught 24 passes for 250 yards and one touchdown in 2018.

Free-agent WR Maurice Harris (Redskins) agreed to terms with the New England Patriots Thursday, March 14, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Harris has worked his way from an undrafted free agent out of Cal a few years ago to a role with Washington as a reserve receiver and now to the Patriots. In 12 games last year, Harris was targeted 47 times and caught 28 passes for 304 yards with Washington. We'll see how he fits into the Patriots offense but he is a player to monitor.

  Patriots | Josh Gordon tendered    Tue Mar 12, 09:43 AM

New England Patriots restricted free-agent WR Josh Gordon received an original-round tender Tuesday, March 12. If he's reinstated, he'll have a one-year, $2.025 million contract.

Footballguys view: This locks in Gordon as a Patriots if he's reinstated in 2019. A second-round pick from the 2012 Supplemental Draft, any team that signed Gordon away (if the Patriots did not match) would have to give up a second rounder. That won't happen, so now we wait to see if Gordon will be allowed to play this upcoming season.
