Report: Saints signing Chris Hogan

The New Orleans Saints are signing free-agent wide receiver Chris Hogan, a source told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Hogan entered the Premier Lacrosse League this offseason after spending the 2020 NFL season with the New York Jets. He racked up just 14 receptions for 118 yards through five appearances last year.

The 33-year-old has also spent time with the Buffalo Bills (2012-15), New England Patriots (2016-18), and Carolina Panthers (2019). He set a Patriots postseason record with 180 receiving yards in the 2017 AFC Championship Game and helped New England win two Super Bowl titles.

New Orleans began looking for help at receiver after losing Michael Thomas to injury. The star pass-catcher will reportedly miss at least the first month of the season after undergoing surgery in June to repair damaged ligaments in his ankle that limited him to seven regular-season appearances in 2020.
