Another veteran player has left the New England Patriots in NFL free agency.
Patriots free agent wide receiver is headed to the NFC and will join the Seattle Seahawks, per ESPN's Josina Anderson.
WR Phillip Dorsett just texted me he is going to the #Seahawks on a 1-year deal.— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) March 24, 2020
Dorsett tallied 29 receptions for 397 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games for the Patriots last season. According to Pro Football Focus, he had zero drops on 30 catchable targets in 2019. The Patriots' wide receiver depth chart is now headlined by Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers.
The Patriots acquired Dorsett in a 2017 trade with the Colts that sent third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett to Indianapolis. Dorsett was a first-round pick (29th overall) of the Colts in 2015.
One of Dorsett's best stretches with the Patriots came in the 2018 NFL playoffs, when he tallied a touchdown reception in both the AFC Divisional Round win over the Los Angeles Chargers and AFC Championship Game victory versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
