Chris Hogan thanks Patriots fans, organization for 'an incredible 3 years'

Chris Hogan has a message for Patriot Nation.

The former Patriots wide receiver, who signed with the Panthers earlier this offseason, took to Instagram to send a sincere "thank you" to the organization and fans.

Just wanted to finally say thank you to all of patriot nation, the patriots organization and all my teammates. It was an incredible 3 years and I am blown away at the amount of support My family has been been given from teammates and fans. I Made a lot of memories in New England and more importantly a lot of friendships that I will have for the rest of my life. I enjoyed every second that I spent in Boston, playing, working, daily grind of the season, they were all unforgettable seasons. 3 years and 3 Super Bowl appearances is something you only dream of as a player. So thank you to all my teammates, coaches and fans for letting me be a part of 3 very special teams and great city. That being said I am beyond excited for the next chapter of my career! Panther nation letsssss gooooooooo! You will get nothing but my best effort day in and day out. And lastly a big thank you to my family for always supporting my dream. @ashleykayhogan without you none of this is possible. #panthers#patriots #newchapter

Hogan tallied 1,651 yards and 12 touchdowns in his three seasons with New England. While he never became a primary option for Tom Brady, his effort and work ethic didn't go unnoticed, especially by his teammates.

As he begins a new chapter in Carolina, Hogan should be a more prominent target in an offense led by another former NFL MVP in Cam Newton.

Chris Hogan didn't always make a significant impact on the field for the Patriots, but he certainly seems to have made one off of it.

After Hogan signed with the Panthers on Friday, fellow wide receiver Julian Edelman bid farewell to a former teammate he considers to be "more of a brother."

“Hogs, good luck on the next chapter bubs. Playing with you was a privilege. Less of a teammate more of a brother. #Family," Edelman wrote.

Edelman isn't the only Patriot that has expressed admiration for Hogan. Josh Gordon did the same on his Instagram story.

In three seasons with New England, Hogan tallied 1,651 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Chris Hogan's work ethic during his time in New England didn't go unnoticed.

Hogan, who signed a one-year deal with the Panthers on Friday, constantly played hard despite never being a primary target of Tom Brady's. His former Patriots teammate Josh Gordon showed his appreciation for Hogan's effort in his Instagram story.

"Love your hustle, love your grind brotha," Gordon wrote.

In three seasons as a Patriot, Hogan tallied 1,651 yards and 12 touchdowns. He'll likely get the chance to contribute more often in a Carolina offense led by quarterback Cam Newton.
