The New England
Patriots made a decision on Phillip Dorsett regarding his future with the team.
The 26-year-old player played four season with the Indianapolis Colts, and joined the Patriots in 2017. Phillip Dorsett entered the league as a first-round draft pick of the Colts in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Miami. The Patriots got him through a trade in exchange for Jacoby Brisett on Sept. 2, 2017. Dorsett played in 57 NFL games and had 11 starts, 85 receptions for 1,237 yards and six touchdowns. He played in five postseason games with seven receptions for 120 yards and a couple of touchdowns.
The player was active in all 16 regular-season games and had two starts. He finished with 32 receptions for 290 yards and three touchdowns. Dorsett played in all three postseason games with five receptions for 70 yards and touchdowns. That’s why the Patriots decided to re-sign him.
“I heard about it,”
Dorsett said earlier in 2018 after the rumors about his trade. “I
try to stay off social media but obviously everything comes to you, but I
didn’t have a reaction. I’ve been traded before, so it was kind of
nerve-wracking. I did get a little startled. I’m not going to lie. I’m just
glad I’m here. Thankful that I’m still here.”
“I love it here. For me to get traded again, it would’ve been
tough. I would’ve been a little shook, but like I said, I’m here. I’m just
thankful I’m still here. I’m giving this team everything I’ve got every day on
the practice field, and whatever they ask me to do, I do.”
never been through this process. I don’t know what the future holds for me,” Dorsett said earlier this month.
“I believe [Bill Belichick] wants me back, but you never know how it will go.
Obviously, I want to be a key contributor for a team — a starter,
that’s always been my goal, a guy that can help a team win. I enjoy going out
there, working hard, and just playing football. I love the game. It’s the only
thing I want to do.”
