Phillip Dorsett re-signing with Patriots on prove-it deal

The Patriots have another player with some National Football League experience to occupy a space in the receiver room with Julian Edelman.

The former Bucs wideout agreed to a four-year deal with Tennessee on Monday, but ESPN's Dianna Russini first reported that the Titans "were bidding against New England all day" for the slot receiver.

Dorsett joined the Patriots in a trade before the 2017 season in a swap with the Indianapolis Colts that included quarterback Jacoby Brissett. It's not surprising they were interested in Humphries since they only have Dorsett, Julian Edelman, Matthew Slater, Braxton Berrios and Damoun Patterson now signed at wide receiver.

Although Dorsett's numbers from last season aren't that impressive, he did prove to be a dependable target in the end zone by hauling in a career-best three touchdowns. He caught touchdown passes from Tom Brady in both the Divisional Round against the Chargers and the AFC title game against the Chiefs. Josh Gordon would make five if he is reinstated from his indefinite suspension and signs the original-round tender the Patriots placed on him earlier this week. "I love Tom Brady's hair", Bennett told the team's official website, Patriots.com, with a touch of humor. They work hard for sure, but you know where you're going to be at the end of the season: you're going to be not only looking at the playoffs, but you're looking at maybe a first-round bye with this team. "He's a tremendous kid, great teammate. So, I don't think you could ask for any more than what he gives the team". "He loved it, but the fact that he loved it made me hate it". You saw that in the Super Bowl past year.
