Giants rumors: Chris Hogan has talked to New York in NFL free agency

The New England Patriots are fresh off of yet another Super Bowl victory, which means several of the team’s players saw their value on the market rise. One such player is wide receiver Chris Hogan, who’s been part of New England’s two title-winning runs out of the three years he’s spent with the team.

However, with a passing offense that has plenty of mouths to feed and the continued success of top option Julian Edelman, Hogan failed to break out as the Patriots’ next great wide receiver.

The 30-year old out of Monmouth is capable of being a top option for other NFL teams given a chance, and it just so happens that Hogan’s opportunity at doing so in on the horizon.

According to the New York Daily News (via Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith), Hogan is in talks with the New York Giants in hopes of a change in scenery.

The Jersey native would indeed make for a rather perfect fit playing in East Rutherford. The Giants just lost their best receiver in Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, and they’re now lacking some veteran blood in the receiving corps.

Hogan’s postseason experience as a Patriot means a lot for the G-Men looking for pass-catching help to complement the development of running back stud Saquon Barkley. The two-time Super Bowl-winning receiver has 12 total receiving touchdowns over three years in New England, averaging about 15 yards per catch over that span.

This also isn’t the first time that Hogan’s been a part of the New York Giants organization. In 2011, he spent a few weeks on the team’s practice squad before being released and signing with the Buffalo Bills in the following year.
