Patriots Sign TE Lance Kendricks To One-Year Deal


According to Ian Rapoport, the Patriots are signing TE Lance Kendricks ahead of training camp. 

Kendricks helps fill a major void at tight end in New England after spending 2018 with the Packers. The deal is for one year, per ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

Kendricks could still potentially face discipline from the NFL related to an arrest for marijuana possession in 2017. He pled no contest earlier this month and is serving six months of probation.  

Kendricks, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Rams back in 2011. He was in the third year of his four-year, $18.5 million contract when the Rams released him during the offseason.

Kendricks later signed a two-year, $4 million contract that included a $1.2 million signing bonus with the Packers back in 2017.

In 2018, Kendricks appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and recorded 19 receptions for 170 yards receiving and one touchdown.
