New England Patriots

From the NFL Newswire at

Amid uncertainty about Rob Gronkowski’s future, the Patriots have added to their depth at tight end, signing free agent Matt LaCosse on Thursday.

ESPN’s Field Yates was the first to report the news. According to Mike Reiss, the Pats struck a 2-year deal with the former Bronco that could be worth up to $4.8 million.

An undrafted free agent, the 26-year-old LaCosse started his career with the Giants and before moving to the Broncos. He caught 24 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown in 2018 with Denver. LaCosse brings good size to the table at 6-foot-6 and 255 pounds.

A move at tight end does not come as a surprise. On Wednesday, the Patriots were reported to have interest in free agent Jared Cook, arguably the best player at the position in this year’s free agent class.
