As reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots are signing former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee.

Originally drafted in the second round of the 2014 draft, Lee played 59 games (30 starts) in six seasons with the Jaguars and averaged 47 catches, 592 yards, and three touchdowns per 16 games.

Injuries have limited Lee’s ability to stay on the field and produce. He missed the entire 2018 season when he tore his ACL and MCL before it started. A shoulder injury limited him to just six games in 2019.

Now 28 and likely playing on a minimal financial commitment, Lee gets a fresh start in New England just as the offense itself is undergoing a major change at quarterback.
