The wide receiver market hasn’t been a particularly hot one since free agency opened last week, but one of the players on the board was able to find a home for the 2020 season on Tuesday.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Phillip Dorsett texted to say he has agreed to a one-year contract with the Seahawks. No financial terms have been reported.

Dorsett was a 2015 first-round pick with the Colts and he spent the last three seasons with the Patriots. He had 29 catches for 397 yards and five touchdowns during the 2019 regular season and added one catch for six yards in the team’s playoff loss to the Titans.

The Seahawks tendered David Moore as a restricted free agent and Malik Turner as an exclusive rights free agent before signing Dorsett. The trio joins DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett at wideout in Seattle.

  1. The Seahawks are just filling out the roster with capable players so their draft options are wide open. Hopefully they trade the 27th pick for D help or atleast trade out of the 1st where they have had next to zero success drafting and acquire a couple more 2’s and 3’s.

  2. Phillip Dorsett never really shined with TB&Patriots, so I’m a bit Leary. 27yoa; maybe he is still developing as a WR, but ??

    Brady never passed deep much, but is that from scheme, Brady’s arm or lack of WR Talent. Answers coming this season, I think.

  3. Wish Phillip luck… he never did develop great chemistry with Brady & not sure we even used him to the best of his abilities…..
    Lotta moving on going on, but I’m not surprised all that much…. time for some new blood to get things exciting again in a new way!!!!
    Be interesting to see who Bill goes after in the draft & how he manipulates the current picks into future picks…..good to believe we will at least have a draft this year albeit a completely different format without the hooplah that usually goes with it!!!
    Go Pats!!!!

  4. Another guy that was squeeze from the Circle of Trust crap from Brady. The guy’s catch yield was like 100%. Brady threw it to him in 2018 and he caught everything. The twohuge postseason TDs were big, too. It sort of opened the floodgates vs LA and the one before half vs KC was a dagger.

    How do you not know the system better than you did the year before? That’s exactly it.

    He knew it just fine. The problem was Brady and BB knew it.

    Trust me when I tell you, Russell Wilson doesn’t have a Circle of Trust snob issue like Brady does.

    When I saw Wilson throw a 1st read lead pass in the postseason to Metcalf, I wondered why Brady couldn’t do that with NKeal Harry. I know the answer, but some of our own fans can’t handle it.

    Good signing. He helped NE win SB 53 and it was for a 3rd string QB for Dorsett.

  6. I find it amusing you think every receiver is an All Pro and Brady brings them down. Such Brady envy.

  7. Why so much hatred towards Brady? Sounds very personal…..like there’s something else going on. Lots of luck to Dorsett and Brady next season.

  8. Seattle is building up to a really good offense…especially for skill positions…not sure when Dissley and Carson come back…but Olsen can be the TE starter for the first game…but who will be the starting running back for Seattle for the first game?

    Ty has Brady envy. It’s quite telling.

  10. The Pats and Hawks do things nearly 100% opposite of each other, yet both are consistently successful. If Dorsett doesn’t make it with the Seahawks it will pretty much be his last NFL stop, because if you can’t make it with the Hawks or Pats where can you make it?

  11. Phillip Dorsett is a deep threat that can take the top off defenses… In NE TB12 was not a deep ball passer anymore, hasn’t been since Randy Moss. Phillip Dorsett was never fully utilized to his full potential. Phillip Dorsett can challenge teams vertically inside or outside and he has home-run potential after the catch as a slot receiver. Great add for Seahawks WR group…

    PRO DAY RESULTS
    40-yard dash: 4.29 and 4.27 seconds
    Vertical jump: 38 inches

  12. Good speed. Good hands.
    But you could never be sure that he would be running the right route.
    Especially on audibles and hot reads.
    Russell Wilson throws a much better deep ball than my guy TB ever did, so maybe the Hawks are looking to wear out DB’s with go-routes all day long.

  13. Dorsett was a 2015 first-round pick with the Colts…thank you, Grigson…need I say more…
