In a week where star receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Stefon Diggs were moved in somewhat stunning trades, the Patriots reportedly have made a receiver move of their own.
And on a day their face of the franchise departed, it's slightly underwhelming.
The Patriots are signing free-agent wide receiver Damiere Byrd, Doug Kyed of NESN reports.
The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Byrd, 27, is coming off his best season in the NFL with 32 catches on 46 targets for 359 yards for the Arizona Cardinals last season after three injury-filled seasons with the Carolina Panthers. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Panthers out of South Carolina in 2016.
Byrd appeared in 11 games for Arizona last season and missed some time with a hamstring injury.
