The Buffalo Bills tendered restricted free agent wide receiver Chris Hogan, but that doesn't mean he'll be on Buffalo's opening day roster. According to Adam Schefter, Hogan is drawing interest from the New England Patriots and the receiver is visiting with the AFC East team today.
Hogan has been with the Bills since 2012 and has been utilized as the team's third or fourth wide receiver in the past two seasons. Between 2014 and 2015, Hogan has recorded 77 receptions, 876 yards, and six touchdowns. Although Hogan saw his reception total drop in 2015, he set a new career high in yards, 450, this past season.
If New England were to give Hogan an offer sheet, the Bills would have five days to match. Considering Buffalo's cap situation, the Patriots could easily manipulate a contract that Buffalo would have trouble matching. In the event that Hogan leaves Buffalo, the team will not receive any compensation as the receiver was an undrafted rookie.
