Report: WR Kendrick Bourne returning to Patriots on 3-year deal


Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has agreed to re-sign with the New England Patriots on a three-year deal, ESPN reported Sunday.

Bourne’s new contract could be worth up to $33 million, and it also features a $4.2 million signing bonus, per the report.

Bourne, 28, was limited to eight games (five starts) last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a loss to the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 29. He had 37 catches for 406 yards and four touchdowns before having his campaign cut short.

In 99 career games (25 starts) with the San Francisco 49ers (2017-20) and Patriots, Bourne has amassed 264 receptions for 3,409 yards and 21 TDs.
