Patriots tight end Matt LaCosse will reportedly opt out of the 2020 NFL season, becoming the eighth Patriot to do so thus far. LaCosse joins a list of notable opt-outs, including linebacker Dont'a Hightower, safety Patrick Chung, right tackle Marcus Cannon, and special teamer Brandon Bolden.
LaCosse was entering his second year with the Patriots and his sixth NFL season. He played in 11 games last season in New England, totaling thirteen receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown. He had signed a two year contract with the Patriots in 2019, the second year of which will now toll to the 2021 season. The Patriots are now incredibly young at the tight end position with holdover Ryan Izzo joining rookies Dalton Keene and Devin Asiasi.
