Seattle's first skill-position addition of free agency came Tuesday, when veteran receiver Phillip Dorsett agreed to a one-year contract with the Seahawks, a league a source confirmed to The Athletic.
New England's wide receiver depth chart now features Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, N'Keal Harry, Jakobi Meyers, and Gunner Olszewski.
WR Phillip Dorsett has moved from Andrew Luck to Tom Brady and now to Russell Wilson. Shows you his work ethic. "That got me extra excited". Dorsett is likely to compete with David Moore, Malik Turner and John Ursua for the No. 3 role in Seattle's offense.
Dorsett now joins a Seattle receiver group that includes the likes of wide receivers in DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. In 14 regular-season games past year, he caught 29 passes for 397 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He'll slot in similarly with the Seahawks offense, where he won't need to be the top target by any means, yet still stands to benefit from the presence of a franchise quarterback.
Russell Wilson's caliber throwing the ball. The 5-foot-10, 192-pound receiver had 12 catches for 194 yards in his first season with the Patriots, then followed it up in 2018 with 32 receptions for 290 yards and three touchdowns.
Dorsett was known for his blazing speed coming out of college, but he's struggled to take advantage of it in the NFL.
