The New England Patriots selected Arizona State wide receiver N'keal Harry with the No. 32 pick overall in the 2019 NFL draft. It's no secret that the Patriots need wide receiver help with Josh Gordon suspended and tight end Rob Gronkowski retiring. Chris Hogan also left in free agency. Harry checks a lot of boxes and works hard at his craft. It's not easy to pick up New England's offense, so Harry will have his work cut out for him and will need to develop chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, but he could be a sneaky late-round flier in redraft leagues.
New England Patriots restricted free-agent wide receiver Josh Gordon signed his $2.025 million tender on Tuesday. Gordon is on an indefinite suspension for his latest violation of the league's substance-abuse policy, but he'll be back with New England if he is reinstated at some point. The star-crossed 28-year-old played in just 11 games for the Pats last year, catching 40 passes for 720 yards and three touchdowns. New England could surely use the receiver help if Gordon is somehow reinstated before the start of the season. He'll be worth a late-round flier in most leagues this fall for his upside.
The New England Patriots are signing free-agent wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to an undisclosed deal on Tuesday, according to a source. It's an intriguing landing spot for the aging and injured receiver, but he'll have to prove his health to fantasy owners first after suffering an Achilles tear with Houston last season. Thomas had five touchdowns on the season in 15 games with the Texans and Broncos and was a disappointment with just 23 receptions for 275 yards and two scores in his seven games with Houston before his injury. New England needs help at the receiver position, but it remains to be seen if Thomas will be an answer.
The New England Patriots visited with Duke quarterback Daniel Jones and West Virginia quarterback Will Grier last Wednesday. They also brought in Texas A&M tight end Jace Sternberger, Iowa tight end Noah Fant, Ole Miss wide receiver A.J. Brown, Baylor receiver Jalen Hurd and South Carolina wideout Deebo Samuel. They'll also host Arizona State wide receiver N'Keal Harry and Notre Dame's Miles Boykin this spring. It's no secret the Pats would like to add receivers, and they could also draft Tom Brady's heir apparent in 2019.
The New England Patriots agreed to a one-year extension through the 2021 season with safety Patrick Chung on Friday, according to sources. The 31-year-old has been a key contributor to the team's secondary throughout his career and has back-to-back seasons of 84 tackles for the Pats. He had half a sack in 2018 and also an interception. Chung continues to be a solid safety both in real life and in IDP formats.
