The Patriots' move to bring back Hastings came after it was revealed fullback Danny Vitale and guard Najee Toran have opted out of the 2020 season, thus opening up a pair of roster spots.
Hastings, 23, played with Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham at Auburn where he caught 26 receptions for 525 yards and four touchdowns in 2017. After missing the 2018 campaign with a torn ACL, Hastings had 19 catches, 222 yards, and a touchdown in 2019.
