Source: the Patriots are signing former Jets DL Mike Pennel and former Broncos TE Matt LaCosse. Some needed depth at those spots.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 14, 2019
The 6’6, 255-pound LaCosse is entering his fifth season in the league. He spent 2015-17 with the New York Giants and 2017-18 with the Broncos. He has 27 receptions for 272 yards and a touchdown over the course of his career, with 250 of those yards coming last season. He played 418 offensive snaps last season, along with 102 special teams snaps.
LaCosse has ideal size for the position an runs an impressive 4.64s 40-yard dash. He’s been stuck at the bottom of the depth chart at both of his previous stops.
It's a 2-year deal for Matt LaCosse worth up to $4.8 million, per a source.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) March 14, 2019
Current depth chart at TE:
LaCosse does not count against the Patriots’ compensatory draft pick calculation. He’ll have a real shot to be the #2 tight end behind Rob Gronkowski.
