Patriots sign Josh Hammond

Mac Jones reflects on what feels different about entering training camp as a second-year quarterback, the dynamic of the Patriots' offense and more.

The Patriots announced they signed first-year receiver Josh Hammond on Friday.

Hammond, 24, originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2020. He signed with the Jaguars out of Florida on April 27, 2020.

He spent the majority of the past two seasons on Jacksonville’s practice squad. Hammond was elevated to the active roster for two games last season, seeing limited action against the Jets and Colts.

The Jaguars waived him on May 16, and the Eagles claimed Hammond off waivers before cutting him on July 26.

The Patriots also activated center David Andrews and punter Jake Bailey after they passed physicals, allowing them to return to practice.
