The Patriots are adding to their receivers room.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, New England is signing Lil'Jordan Humphrey to a one-year contract.

Humphrey entered the league in 2019 as an undrafted free agent with the Saints. He played sparingly while going between the practice squad and the active roster in 2019 and 2020. But in 2021, he appeared in 10 games with four starts. He caught 13 passes for 249 yards with a pair of touchdowns.

The Patriots also signed former Saints receiver Ty Montgomery this offseason and drafted Tyquan Thornton in the second round out of Baylor.

New England has several receivers vying for prominent roles in its offense, including DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne, N’Keal Harry, and rookie Tyquan Thornton.

The Patriots finished their mandatory minicamp last week.

  1. The fans were hoping for Big’Jordan Humphrey, but this one is cool too.

  2. Good hands, blocks well, route running needs improvement, underutilized with saints.

  3. Belichick is delusional, he thinks he can still pull “finding gold among rocks” without Brady. Unfortunately it was Brady who turned rocks to gold.

  4. As a Saints fan I like LiL’ Jordan, he was exciting to see play. All of you’ll doubting him he is pretty good

  5. This is a big reciever that understands body positioning and can box out a corner. He has produced when he has gotten on the field. Doesn’t have the tools to bale a #1 or#2. Lacks speed and burst. But he can be a contributor.

    This has to be at least a bottom 5 receiving corps. No question.

    Nah. Maybe bottom half. Ravens, Bears, Packers are worse for sure. Falcons are also down there with Gage’s exit and Ridley’s suspension. Doubt it will be that hard to look and find a half dozen or more that are worse.
