The New England Patriots have been throwing plenty of money around in free agency, and we’ve got you covered on it all here at the Patriots free agency tracker.

Most of the money the Pats have thrown around has been at their own players. Key pieces like Michael Onwenu, Kendrick Bourne, Hunter Henry, Josh Uche, and Anfernee Jennings have all agreed to new deals to stay in New England.

As we head into day 4 of the free agency period, the Patriots still have needs and enough cap space for a big signing or two. However, the market has thinned at their positions of need and they may also need to explore trade ideas.

We’ll have every piece of Patriots news & rumors for you as the open market rolls along. Read below for the latest in the live tracker…


  • Patriots add new wide receiver

    The New England Patriots are bringing in a new wide receiver via free agency.

    As first reported by the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Patriots are signing former Minnesota Vikings receiver K.J. Osborn. Osborn has played 50 of a possible 51 games over the past three seasons, averaging 54 catches, 627 yards, and five touchdowns per 17 games in that span.

  • Showing interest in Tyler Boyd

    According to Mark Daniels at MassLive, the Patriots are showing interest in veteran free-agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd.

    Boyd, 29, has long been a steady presence at WR for the Bengals, including a 90-catch season in 2019. His production has dipped in recent years, as the Bengals added Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins to the depth chart. He’d be a good, solid signing for the Patriots, just not the big difference-maker the team needs.

  • Patriots expected to address WR in the draft

    According to Josina Anderson, the Patriots have “moved on” from free agency and are “mainly” turning toward the draft for wide receiver help. It’s been a disappointing start to free agency for anyone that hoped the Patriots would land a big name at the position.

    The Pats made a strong push to sign Calvin Ridley, but the former Jaguars receiver swerved the football world when he decided to sign with the Tennessee Titans. Now, the Patriots can only sign mid-tier wideouts off the open market, at best. They’ll have to hope they find their next No. 1 receiver in the draft, or possibly through a trade.

  • Patriots sign G Nick Leverett

    The Patriots are signing former Bucs guard Nick Leverett to a one-year deal worth up to $3 million, according to Jeremy Fowler. Terms of the contract have yet to be reported. Leverett started 10 games for the Bucs in 2022, but played only three games with no offensive snaps in 2023.
