NESN’s Doug Kyed considers Chris Hogan a candidate to play outside in the Patriots’ scheme.
Hogan saw X-receiver snaps when Sammy Watkins went down last year. The Patriots reportedly don’t view him as a slot-only option. Hogan (6’1/220) has the size to play outside, but could also make Danny Amendola expendable. New England can save $4.1 million from Amendola’s release. Mar 12 - 6:11 PM

Patriots signed WR Chris Hogan to a three-year, $12 million contract.

The Bills declined their right of first refusal on the 27-year-old slot receiver. Since Hogan is a former undrafted free agent tendered at the original-round level, the Bills receive no compensation for his departure. Hogan would seem to be a redundant talent for a team that already has Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, but both of Hogan's fellow slot men are rather injury prone. Hogan is also two and a half years younger than Edelman. Amendola turns 31 in November. It's not outside the realm of possibility that Amendola ends up a cap casualty. Hogan is a chain mover who will do work over the middle of the field for New England's methodical attack.

Patriots signed restricted free agent WR Chris Hogan to a three-year, $12 million offer sheet.

The deal reportedly includes a $5.5 million cap charge for 2016. Buffalo has five days to match New England's offer, but according to Bills beat writer Sal Capaccio, that's "very unlikely." This falls in line with New England's usual under-the-radar approach to free agency. Hogan wasn't a game changer in Buffalo, but if anyone can maximize his skill set, it's Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.
Mar 11 - 9:17 AM

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci expects the Patriots' restricted free agent offer sheet to WR Chris Hogan to be a "tough one for the Bills to match."

Carucci expects Hogan to sign the offer sheet on Friday morning. The Patriots have a long history of pursuing restricted free agents, landing Wes Welker when he was a Dolphins RFA and also signing Emmanuel Sanders to a one-year RFA offer sheet the Steelers later matched. Hogan runs 4.5-flat at 6-foot-1, 221.
Mar 10 - 9:05 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Patriots are "preparing" an offer sheet for restricted free agent WR Chris Hogan.

Once Hogan signs the offer sheet, the Bills will have five days to match. Hogan would be a nice add, but he is not the outside force the Patriots offense has been missing the last several seasons. Hogan caught 36 passes for 450 yards and two scores with the Bills last season.
Mar 10 - 6:23 PM

Restricted free agent WR Chris Hogan will visit the Patriots on Thursday.

If he signs an offer sheet, the Bills would have five days to match it. ESPN's Mike Reiss correctly predicted New England would have interest in Hogan, who is coming off a career-high in yards (450). The Patriots have been a non-factor in free agency to this point, losing out to Tennessee in the Rishard Matthews sweepstakes and failing to land Marvin Jones. Hogan wouldn't be the splashiest signing, but he'd be a nice under-the-radar piece for crafty offensive minds Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels.
Mar 10 - 10:11 AM

Bills extended an original-round tender to restricted free agent WR Chris Hogan.

DT Corbin Bryant and OT Jordan Mills have also been tendered at the original-round ($1.67 million) level. A slot receiver, Hogan has 77 catches over the past two seasons. 2016 shouldn't be any sort of big step forward for the 27 year old. Hogan is recovering from wrist surgery, but should be ready well ahead of training camp.
Mar 7 - 4:56 PM

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss suggests restricted free agent Chris Hogan could be a target for the Patriots.

While Hogan will probably remain in Buffalo, there's a slight chance the Bills won't tender him an offer because of their bleak salary cap situation. If that's the case, he'd be an affordable option for the Patriots, who are also dealing with limited cap space. The Patriots' lack of receiver depth hurt them last season as Brandon LaFell and others proved ineffective. Nicknamed "7-11" because he stays open, Hogan is a 27-year-old slot receiver.

Bills WR Chris Hogan will undergo surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right wrist this week.

Hogan underwent the same procedure last offseason on his left wrist. He's unclear when the injury occurred, but believes the injuries are from run-blocking on the outside. Hogan said he could barely sleep at night the final month of the season and felt shooting pain up his arm every time a pass would hit his hands. His late-season drops can probably be attributed to the injury.
Jan 6 - 10:34 AM

Bills WR Chris Hogan caught 1-of-3 targets for two yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Jets.

Greg Salas (3-41) stepped up for second receiver duties against the Jets, despite Hogan logging more snaps. A situational slot receiver who saw a late-season bump in playing time due to Robert Woods (groin) and Charles Clay's (back) injuries, Hogan finishes 2015 with 35 receptions for 448 yards and two touchdowns. 27-year-old Hogan will be a restricted free agent this offseason. Hogan can be a useful role player, but he's unlikely to draw serious interest as a potential starter.
Jan 3 - 4:55 PM

Chris Hogan caught 2-of-4 targets for 39 yards in Week 16.

Hogan was a non-factor in a game Tyrod Taylor attempted 18 passes. Even with Charles Clay and Robert Woods sidelined, Hogan won't be a DFS play in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:59:00 PM

Chris Hogan caught 1-of-3 targets for 13 yards in the Bills' Week 15 loss to the Redskins.

He dropped one pass that would have gone for 60 yards one play before Mike Gillislee ran for a 60-yard touchdown. Hogan is well off the fantasy radar.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 06:09:00 PM

Chris Hogan caught 3-of-5 targets for 34 yards in the Bills' Week 12 loss to the Chiefs.

He should have had another catch late in the fourth quarter, but coach Rex Ryan inexplicably failed to challenge the play that would have resulted in a first down with the Bills trailing by eight. It may have cost the Bills the game. Hogan is a steady chain-mover for the Bills, but not a fantasy asset.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:49:00 PM

Chris Hogan caught 6-of-7 targets for 95 yards in the Bills' Week 11 loss to the Patriots on Monday night.

His catches and yards led the Bills. The lone pass Hogan didn't reel in should have been a 34-yard touchdown. Hogan roasted slot CB Patrick Chung in coverage, beating him by about two yards, but Tyrod Taylor badly under-threw the pass and Chung was able to catch up and knock it away. Hogan also made a poor error by not getting a first down on a second-down catch, which led to third-and-short and an ensuing loss on the play. Hogan doesn't bring any sort of consistent stats to the table and is merely a WR5.
Tue, Nov 24, 2015 12:45:00 AM

Chris Hogan caught 6-of-11 targets for 56 yards Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Hogan committed a drop on the first drive of the game and saw just three targets after the break. With Sammy Watkins on the way back, Hogan should return to a lightly-used role after the bye week.
