Patriots, DL Mike Pennel strike 2-year deal

Patriots, DL Mike Pennel strike 2-year deal

In five seasons, three with the Packers and the last two years in New York, Pennel has totaled 69 games played with 15 starts.

LaCosse (6-6, 255 pounds) entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of IL with the New York Giants in 2015.

The Patriots' tight end depth chart now includes LaCosse, Rob Gronkowski, Ryan Izzo, Stephen Anderson and Jacob Hollister. He finished the year with 24 receptions for 250 yards and one touchdown. He also has spent time with the New York Giants and New York Jets since coming into the National Football League in 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of IL. LaCosse is 6-foot-6, 255 pounds, so he can help in the blocking game as well.


Matt LaCosse #83 of the Denver Broncos runs with the ball against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium on December 9, 2018 in Santa Clara, California.

Elsewhere, NFL Network reports that the Patriots added another wide receiver to the undermanned mix in former Redskin Maurice Harris.
