Phillip Dorsett, Joins Seattle wideout corps

Dorsett will sign a one-year deal with the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The speedy Dorsett, who caught 29 passes for 397 yards and five TDs in 14 games with the Patriots last season, now has a chance to claim Seattle's No. 3 wideout role behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. It's a new team context that should garner the 2015 first-rounder added volume after only seeing 54 targets in 2019.

Stephen Gostkowski, Let go by Patriots

The Patriots will release Gostkowski (hip), Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

Analysis: When healthy, Gostkowski was entrenched as the Patriots' kicker since he was selected in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. A hip injury limited the 36-year-old to four games last season, however. Per Doug Kyed of, with Gostkowski on the way out, Matthew Slater is now the longest-tenured player on the Patriots.

Jarrett Stidham, Competing with Hoyer

The Patriots' signing of Brian Hoyer suggests Stidham has a good chance to earn the starting quarterback job, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: It's a good sign for Stidham that the team signed Hoyer instead of a more accomplished veteran, though there's still time to add further competition to the quarterback room before Week 1. WEEI's Ryan Hannable reports that Hoyer's agent said the 34-year-old was told he'd have a chance to compete for the starting job, presumably squaring off against Stidham this summer. The 2019 fourth-round pick beat out Hoyer for the backup job last offseason, prompting the Patriots to release the veteran at the end of August.

Jarrett Stidham, Franchise moves on from Brady

With Tom Brady officially a member of the Buccaneers, Stidham and Cody Kessler are currently the only QBs the Patriots have under contract for 2020.

Analysis: That said, it seems likely the team will add a quarterback or two via trade, free agency or the NFL Draft. Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, Stidham, who turns 24 in August, "is considered mature beyond his years" and "has shown a knack for making plays on the move," but it remains to be seen if the Patriots will look create a scenario in which the 2019 fourth-rounder has a chance to immediately claim the top job, or one in which veteran competition is brought in with an eye toward affording Stidham added time to develop into a reliable NFL starter.

Tom Brady, Deal includes $50 million guaranteed

Brady's two-year deal with the Buccaneers includes $50 million guaranteed along with another $9 million in incentives, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Schefter also notes that the agreement includes a clause that prevents the team from franchise tagging the QB after two years, which suggests that Brady -- who turns 43 in August -- "has ideas of playing beyond this contract." In the meantime, he'll look forward to working with a talented group of pass-catchers in Tampa Bay that currently includes wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, as well as tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate.
