Soon after he stomped his feet on a five-yard curl against the New Orleans Saints last week, Jacob Hollister became the first undrafted New England Patriots tight end to catch a pass in his true rookie season since head coach Bill Belichick’s arrival in 2000.Matt Lengel, who had two grabs for 22 yards and a touchdown in 2016, spent the entirety of his first season in the league on the Cincinnati Bengals’ practice squad. Zach Sudfeld, meanwhile, appeared in three games in 2013 and went without a reception Brooks Ellis Jersey. And Jermaine Wiggins, who signed with the New York Jets as a rookie free agent in 1999, secured two for four yards and a TD for New York before joining the Patriots in the midst of 2000.So, in some sense, Hollister had already broken new ground before the 1 p.m. ET kickoff hit this Sunday.The 23-year-old Wyoming product just added to it.Active for his second career regular-season game, Hollister collected his second career pass. It went for 19 yards from quarterback Tom Brady. And it was well-earned, even reminiscent of the reception from Jimmy Garoppolo he hung onto in the preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars https://www.shoppatriotsapparel.com/Jason_King_Jersey.Undrafted rookie Jacob Hollister sitting down and hanging on against Jaguars safety Jarrod Wilson.
