Tight end Hunter Henry plans to remain with the New England Patriots, agreeing to a three-year deal and resisting a chance to return to free agency next week.

According to Friday’s reports, Henry and the Patriots worked diligently this week to complete a contract after New England used its transition tag to bring back safety Kyle Dugger.

Drafted in the second round by the Chargers, Henry joined New England on a three-year, $37.5 million deal as a free agent in March 2021.

Henry was third on the Patriots with 42 receptions and led the team with six touchdown catches in 2023.

Henry has 133 receptions and 17 TDs over the past three seasons as the Patriots searched for the right answer at quarterback. The 29-year-old has 329 career catches for 3,853 yards and 38 touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2016.
