The Carolina Panthers have agreed to sign Chris Hogan to a one-year deal.
Hogan had 35 catches for 532 yards and three touchdowns last season for the New England Patriots.
Hogan turns 32 in October.
"It's a business,'' Hogan said of the Patriots. "I can't read too much into it. At the end of the day they're trying to run the team as best as they see fit. Sometimes things don't work out. I'm just really excited about this opportunity.''
