Ex-New England Patriots wide receiver Phillip Dorsett will run his next routes in the Pacific Northwest.

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Dorsett, the 27-year-old free agent told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Tuesday.

Dorsett caught 73 passes for 881 yards and eight touchdowns over his three regular seasons in New England, with a career-high five scores arriving by mid-November of this past campaign.

An additional eight receptions for 126 yards and two touchdowns were logged in postseason play during Dorsett’s tenure.

New England originally acquired the former first-round pick out of Miami from the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for quarterback Jacoby Brissett leading up to the 2017 NFL roster deadline. Dorsett, who turned a combined 62.7 percent of his Patriots targets into completions, re-signed on a one-year pact last spring.

Dorsett’s exit leaves New England’s wideout room with Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, N’Keal Harry, Jakobi Meyers, Gunner Olszewski, Quincy Adeboyejo, Devin Ross, extended All-Pro special-teamer Matthew Slater and recent addition Damiere Byrd.
