Patriots hang onto Michael Hoomanawanui for two more

The Patriots turned to Michael Hoomanawanui last year when their tight end position was a mess on and off the field.

Monday, he was rewarded for it.

According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, Hoomanawanui agreed to a two-year deal to stay with the Patriots.

While he was a solid complementary tight end, the Patriots obviously need a healthy Rob Gronkowski this year, as Hoomanawanui posted 12 receptions for the season, scoring one touchdown.

  1. Michael hoomawoomie is the worst linebacker in the NFL

    Why? Hoomanawanui is a non-factor. Really hoping this isn’t the biggest splash the Patriots make in free agency.

    LB??? non-factor?? Don’t go by the news – watch the game. He is a blocking TE so you will not see it in the stats

  2. .

    The guy was a street free agent. Now he’s got a team and a two year contract. He’s a poor man’s rags to riches story.


  3. I like Hoomanawanui. He’s a blocking TE so obviously he’s not the two-headed monster that we have in Gronk (or had in Hernandez). But still, his TD last year was a great catch just at the right time. He’s the kind of player that you know what he will do plays after plays. But then, once in a while, he will surprise you with a great catch. Good move Pats!

  4. Moves like these are why we are amongest the final 4 teams in the league year in and year out.

    How about a cupcake schedule? Playing the Jets, Dolphins and Bills 6x a year pads their win totals.

    How about tape doesn’t lie? Belichick is a genius at signing scrubs as UDFA’s. However, once these scrubs get some tape, they get exposed and he cuts them.

    How about SF and Seattle? You really think in a Super Bowl, Brady can beat their defenses in a with Edelman and Amendola and Hoomanawanui?

  5. Hooman was a gerat run blocker.Having him @ TE is like have a 6th Olineman out there. He was a key part of Blount having all those rushing yards down the stretch

  6. That TD was awesome, (he does that from time to time) he is not a Gronk or a graham, but he is a solid TE for what he does.
