JUST IN: New England anticipated WR K.J Osborn has been signed finally

Finally, New England signed long-expected wide receiver K.J. Osborn.

I’m sending K.J. Osborn to the AFC East.

Patriots signing former Vikings WR K.J. Osborn

Osborn plays his first four seasons in Minnesota before moving to New England. Osborn has grown into a reliable receiver who offered a deep threat in Kevin O’Connell’s offense, despite not getting much playing time in his rookie campaign. Osborn has averaged 11.7 yards per reception over the previous three seasons with the Vikings, with 158 receptions, 1,845 yards, and 15 touchdowns.

Osborn had a career-high 655 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in 2021 after catching 50 passes. It was his greatest season to date.

The 2020 draft pick selected in the fifth round joins a competitive wide receiver class in New England that includes Demario Douglas, JuJu-Smith Schuster, Kendrick Bourne, Jalen Reagor, and Tyquan Thornton.

With the addition of tight end Austin Hooper, running back Antonio Gibson, and quarterback Jacoby Brissett, New England is continuing to restructure their offensive lineup.

Whether Osborn will be catching passes from Brissett or perhaps a rookie quarterback in his debut season in Foxborough will be determined in April, as the Patriots have the third overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.


WR Mike Williams, a free agent, will be visiting the Panthers, Jets, and Steelers this week.

There will be a tour by Mike Williams.

The Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, and Pittsburgh Steelers are among the teams that the former Chargers wide receiver is set to visit this week, according to sources cited by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Sunday.

Three teams are anticipated to pursue 6-foot-4 receiver Williams, who is a highly sought-after free agent with big-play making skills, after he was released by the Chargers following seven seasons. With a minimum of 250 catches, the 29-year-old receiver has topped the NFL in yards per reception since 2018. Gregg Rosenthal of the NFL ranks Williams as the twelveth best free agent for 2024.
