Former Patriots receiver Chris Hogan to debut documentary detailing lacrosse journey
Former New England Patriots receiver is releasing a new documentary entitled Undrafted, which will detail his transition from the NFL to professional lacrosse.
Hogan went undrafted in the 2021 Premier Lacrosse League, but was later selected off waivers by the Cannons Lacrosse Club. The documentary, set to debut on May 18 on The Lacrosse Network, will explore Hogan’s journey back to the sport that was his first love.
I’ve gone undrafted my entire career. This is no different.

Before he was catching passes from Tom Brady, Hogan was starring for the Penn State Nittany Lions. He played all 14 games and scored 29 goals during the 2009 season.
However, Hogan would embark on a different journey following his days at Penn State. He first broke into the NFL with the Buffalo Bills in 2013.
Just a few years later, Hogan would make a name for himself in New England. He started in 14 of his 15 appearances with the Patriots during the 2016 campaign, hauling in 38 receptions for 680 yards and four touchdowns. Hogan even led the NFL with 17.9 yards per reception.
It seemed the former lacrosse standout was on the cusp of football stardom. Hogan had 34 receptions for 439 yards in nine games in 2017. He had six receptions for 128 yards and a score in Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Alas, it was not be. Hogan left the Patriots for the Carolina Panthers prior to the 2019 season. Injuries would begin to impact his career, and he played just 12 games with the Panthers and New York Jets over the course of the next two seasons.
Still, Hogan is not allowing his athletic dreams to die so easily. He wants to tell his story as he prepares for the upcoming season with the Cannons.
