The Patriots announced they signed first-year receiver Josh Hammond on Friday.

Hammond, 24, originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2020. He signed with the Jaguars out of Florida on April 27, 2020.

He spent the majority of the past two seasons on Jacksonville’s practice squad. Hammond was elevated to the active roster for two games last season, seeing limited action against the Jets and Colts.

The Jaguars waived him on May 16, and the Eagles claimed Hammond off waivers before cutting him on July 26.

The Patriots also activated center David Andrews and punter Jake Bailey after they passed physicals, allowing them to return to practice.

  1. Belichick: Mac Jones, here is a $35,000 Toyota, give a try.

    Belichick: Hey, Jones, here is $40,000 Honda, give a try.

    Belichick : Still not working? here is $45,000 Ford. Try to win F1 with it, that is all I am willing to pay.

    The so called magic system 😂.

    HOFErs Moss, Welker, Gronk and Edelman all say hello.

    No HOF QB in the last 30+ years had more HOFers at WR and/or TE than Tom Brady.

    You people live in a creepy world of upside down and someho think you are accurate when you have no idea your brain has been compromised by misinformation brainwashing.

    It’s downright scary.

  4. They will waive DeVante Parker next week with an injury designation.

  5. Man, was that dumb.

    ++++++++++++

    Are you saying Belichick was dumb? Why don’t you wikipedia Pats seasons?

    There is a table “released/waived”. Check yourself, to see how many WR/TE/RB he tried.

  6. Poor poor fan club. So triggered and mad that I will never give their boi Tommy any respect 😂

    Too bad cupcakes that’s what happens when your hero cheats and tries to cover it up.

  7. Cheap receivers save cap room and money to be spent in other areas. I’m excited to see the finished product.

  8. When your hero cheat

    ++++++++++

    He is not my hero . If you think he is a scumbag, be my guest. I just think he is the best skilled QB.

    Cheat? Only those who will drop their underwear when accused of stealing money and hiding the money under underwear.

  9. I just think he is the best skilled QB.

    ——————

    Best skilled do not get drafted 199th overall after 4 years of college tape.

  10. No GM has surrounded his QB better than BB surrounded Brady. When it’s all said and done, BB will have personally drafted and developed over a half dozen HOFers and made them many millions more than they otherwise would have gotten.

    And, this Willy Lee crazy person is trying to sell us the opposite.

    Brees, Rodgers, even Peyton Maning, would have LOVED BB as their GM/Coach. Loved it.

    Only in Willie Lee’s world, did the guy who made Tom Brady, somehow harmed Tom Brady.

  11. TD6,

    Read my first post.

    If you win F1 with a Toyota Corolla, who should get the credits?

    What is “F1”, Forumla One? First off, humans are not machines. I like sports for that very reason, so your analogy is stupid.

    I don’t care if BB wins with a bunch of Gremlins. He’s so far ahead of you and most people, you mock what you don’t even understand.

    Next, you clearly never played sports or football, because if you did, you’d know the coach is important and your environment is absolutely vital. All it takes is for someone to look around the NFL and look at the QBs whose careers were destroyed before they even started due to bad owners, GMS and/or coaches.

    Mac Jones had the best rookie year out of the others last year for 2 reasons:

    He is the best prospect along with Lawrence, but also has the best GM and Coach compared to any of the rest. Hence, why Mac Jones looked way better than Lawrence. This is not an accident. To you it is, but to the rest of us who can see straight through 20 years of BB overall brilliance, it isn’t.

    Tom Brady was an above average game manager and a gamer from 2001-2005, before he got toys to play with in 2007. It’s a fact. He didn’t wow you with stats. He wowed you with always hitting the open guy on time, not playing favorites and not turning it over or making a horrible decision. The league changed rules, all QBs have benefitted, and the big mistake Brady made himself from 2007-2012, because he wanted that responsibility, was equating passing MORE and gaining more yards in the air (in that stupid shotgun), to winning the game. That was wrong. Peyton Manning thought that, too, and it was wrong and Brady himself benefitted from it in 2003 and 2004, with NE’s D bamboozling Manning TWICE in less than stellar weather.

    You either started watching football in 2007, are 20 something years old or came out of a coma in 2014, because Tom Brady failed numerous times with the offense of his own choosing from 2007-2012 in those postseasons. He threw way more times just to do it without being present in the game. INT rate went up, game management skills diminished and 3 and out rates also went up, putting more pressure on his own D against good teams.

    BB rectified it by drafting JimmyG and threatening Brady’s tenure in NE, and Brady responded with playing a lot better like the 2001-2005 Brady.

    Every button ever pushed in NE the last 20+ years is pushed by BB, not Brady, and you and NHPats and all these other creepy people who just lust after Brady as grown adults, have serious issues.

    Good luck with that.

    =======

    Street cars won’t fit F1 specs so NO. They cannot even participate

  14. ‘No HOF QB in the last 30+ years had more HOFers at WR and/or TE than Tom Brady’
    ‘No GM has surrounded his QB better than BB surrounded Brady’

    Sounds like you have been drinking the Patriot kool-aid (or chowder) Yes BB has done well with some free agents (Moss and Welker), and developed some great players (but very few of those have been skill position people). In 21 drafts (I’m not including the last 2 drafts because the jury is still out on them) Belichick has hit on 2 wide receivers, Deion Branch and Julian Edelman. Nobody would call that ‘surrounding his QB’ with talent. Compared to a team like the Steelers who constantly are developing new wide receivers, Brady was elevating average talent and making them champions.

  15. Suddenly moss’ 3 days spent in Boston make him a patriot for life? Comical.

  16. I do not put TB12 in the most skilled category. I have him in the most accomplished category. But he certainly does not lack skill, just look at his last two years in Tampa Bay.

  17. I love how the fan club gives all the credit to Tommy for his team winning 12 games in 2019 even with the 18th ranked passer rating in the league. 😂

    Here’s a fun fact:
    Tom Brady from weeks 4-17 in 2019: 82 rating
    Cam Newton from weeks 4-17 in 2020 with the same roster: 81 rating

    Huh. 🤔

  18. I do not put TB12 in the most skilled category. I have him in the most accomplished category
    —-
    Tommy is absolutely the most accomplished QB. It’s great for him to be on awesome teams with great defenses kicking and coaching and also play in the worst division in pro football for almost 20 years being virtually guaranteed a home playoff game every year.

  19. Street car won’t fit F1

    ++++++

    Ya, without Brady, Pats wouldn’t even get first round bye, won’t even be in AFCCG.

  20. Best skilled do not get drafted 199th.

    ++++++++++

    If Peyton and Rodgers has had all the skills you think they had, they wouldn’t have been so miserable in January.

    Figure out what you have missed before talking about QB skills.

  21. He (Belichick) is so far ahead of you.

    +++++++

    I knew it would be a disaster for Cam Newton, did he know?

  22. There is a reason why Belichick is in the role of leading a football organization to unprecedented levels of success while someone else is in the role of cherry picking individual detail for second guessing him on the internet the whole way and not even getting all those right. There are a million details to manage to produce NFL success and the trick is to get more of them right than anyone else could have, Belichick does that.

  23. Belichick signed Newton to a $1.75MM contract in 2020 and was cut in 2021.

    He was a placeholder. Short money allowed the Pats to retool in free agency at the end of the year. A mediocre season gave the Patriots the 15th pick which allowed Belichick to stand pat and draft Jones, who outplayed all 4 rookies drafted ahead of him, one of whom cost San Francisco 3 1st round picks.

    So, yes, General Lee, Belichick knew what he was getting in Cam.

  24. There are millions of details to manage to produce NFL success.

    +++++++++++++

    All of them won’t be problems if a coach doesn’t have to spend a lot on offense and still has a top offense that can score 24 or more in back to back playoff games.

  25. “A mediocre season gave the Patriots the 15th pick which allowed Belichick to stand pat and draft Jones, who outplayed all 4 rookies drafted ahead of him, one of whom cost San Francisco 3 1st round picks.”
    _____________________

    Mac Jones was a great pick-up for the Pats. But he was more or less expected to be the most pro-ready, and it’s not surprising he had a better rookie season than the rest given the circumstances & the team he went to (compared to the teams the other 4 went to).

    Baker Mayfield was also considered the best of his class after year 1. If I had to bet on a ranking 2 years from now, I’d say Mac will end up 3rd or 4th best of the class. But of course, we’ll see.

    But Peyton is 3-1 against Brady in the AFC championship games. So much for those skills only you can see.

  27. This team is so bad. The Jets would probably batter them. Buffalo destroyed their hopes and dreams.

  28. Tigerlilac,

    The system depends on QB’s ability of seeing opportunities quickly and in advance. That was something no one would expect from Cam Newton.

    BTW, he signed those tight end in Mar, long before he planed to start Mac Jones. He still paid Cam to go, didn’t he?

  29. But Peyton is 3-1 against Brady in the AFC championship games. So much for those skills only you can see.

    Not just that. Peyton Eli and Foles are 7-1 against Brady in AFC Championship games and Super Bowls. So much for the so called Goat.

  30. Many QBs can see open receivers quickly, Brady is not unique. For example Joe Burrow saw Chase wide open on the last play of the SB but Aaron Darnold destroyed the play before he could do anything.

    The Patriots offensive line gave Brady time and the pocket to hit open receivers. Not many QBs were protected as well as Brady has been in his career and that’s because of Belichick and Dante Scarnecchia.

  31. “look away from his intended receiver right after snap too fool defenders or freeze defenders for a fraction of a second ”

    Still waiting for you and GMG to show me 3 similar plays by Peyton, Rodgers, Brees or Mahomes.

  32. Sorry fan club. Goats aren’t .125 against Peyton Eli and Foles in Super Bowls and AFC Championship games. That’s not a fluke that’s a trend.

  33. We know the defense of the “genius” collapsed against eli and foles. We know it collapsed against Peyton in 2007 AFCCG, and allowed the completely crippled Peyton throwing 2 TD in 2016 AFCCG.

    I don’t know how some Belichick believers can bash Brady while at same time shamelessly Talking about Belichick’s greatness.

  34. We know the defense of the “genius” collapsed against eli and foles.

    Sorry Tommy was absolutely dreadful in both Giants losses and as for the Eagles game I would expect a Goat to do a lot better than have the football down 5 with in 2:00 or so left and fumble the game away.I would also expect him to catch that throw not drop it. Foles did why couldn’t Tommy?

    Funny how the fan club tries to tell us that Tommy can elevate his team to greatness… and then they make excuses for him when he doesn’t. 😂

  35. Lol, still don’t get the point.

    It is fine you think Brady was dreadful, but you shouldn’t bash Brady and praise Belichick AT SAME TIME, it is stupid, because over the 7 games against Peyton, Eli and Foles, the defense of the genius was more dreadful.

    BTW, Gronk was injured in AFCCG before 2nd SB .

  36. It is fine you think Brady was dreadful, but you shouldn’t bash Brady and praise Belichick AT SAME TIME, it is stupid, because over the 7 games against Peyton, Eli and Foles, the defense of the genius was more dreadful.

    17 and 21 points. The defense did their job in both Giants games. Tommy didn’t. He was terrible. Maybe he shouldn’t have run his mouth and mocked the Giants defense before SB42 before they made him look foolish, yes?

    Why should I believe Tommy is Goat and can elevate his teammates when so many excuses are being made for him when he doesn’t? 🙂

  37. – 17 and 21 points. The defense did their job in both Giants games.
    ——
    Correction: 19 points not 21. The safety was entirely on Brady’s stupidity taking an intentional grounding in the end zone and creating a 9 point swing. Lost that game all by himself against the 25th ranked defense in the league. That’s not very Goat like imo. 🙂

  38. Lol, you conveniently forget two games against Peyton and Foles, typical Belichick apologizer.

    BTW, both QB played safe until last 6 minutes, and Belichick’s defense failed against an average defense when game was on the line, twice. That is pathetic.

    Montana would have finished the 19-0 season if he had a shot. Would have crushed the Giants in the second game too. So would Peyton. I bet Foles would have beaten them twice too.

    Tommy couldn’t even do that once. Now he owns the biggest loss in the history of pro sports. 😢

  40. I guess it’s not surprising Tommy would cheat. He was obviously jealous that all football fans admire Peyton Manning and respect his game a lot more than a nice little system QB with a little arm like Tommy. So Tommy did what he thought he had to do to catch up.

    Too bad he wasn’t honest enough to admit it like Bill did. Fans would have forgiven him and many might even think he had a good point that the league didn’t care about air pressure in footballs. Could have made the league fix their process and game controls and all players would have respected that. Too bad he smashed his cell phone instead. 😢

  41. Lol, says a Belichick believer who doesn’t even know that he is trying to prove how average Belichick is.

    You never do. Clueless

  43. Cancerman2020,

    Check what Bengals defense did in last playoff, then check how Belichick’s defense did in playoff, OK?

    Greatness? My arse.

  44. Sorry fan club you don’t get to tell us Brady won games by himself and carried the coaches and rest of his team along for the ride and then blame them not him when they lose.

  45. Lol, never said he won games by himself.

    I said he did something no other QB would be able to do with the squad given by beliCHEAP, hence no SB with any other QB for Pats.

    Learn logic, OK?

  46. Belichick does have a lot to prove.

    He clearly benefited from coaching a cheating QB who padded his stats playing in by far the worst division in professional sports this century. Now that Bill has a legit QB without the cheating, he needs to prove he can coach him up to win one.

    Let’s see what happens.
