The New England Patriots need depth at tight end, and they reportedly will be hosting one for a free agent visit Thursday. LaCosse entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of IL in 2015. The 26-year-old started five of the 15 games he played last season in Denver, where he set career highs with 24 catches and 250 receiving yards and scored his first touchdown. He spent time with the Giants and New York Jets from 2015-2017 before joining the Denver Broncos late in the 2017 season. In New England, LaCosse will join a tight end room that includes Rob Gronkowski and Stephen Anderson. The 6-foot-4, 332-pound defensive tackle came into the National Football League with the Green Bay Packers in 2014 as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State-Pueblo. The 27-year-old spent his first three years in the league with the Packers before spending the last two in NY.

Elsewhere, NFL Network reports that the Patriots added another wide receiver to the undermanned mix in former Redskin Maurice Harris.
