March 16 (UPI) -- The New England Patriots have agreed to a contract with free agent tight end Hunter Henry.

The move to sign Henry comes just a day after the Patriots agreed to a four-year contract with former Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith.

The Patriots agreed to a two-year deal with former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Nelson Agholor and former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne earlier this week.

Henry, 26, was a second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He has spent the last five seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound pass catcher had a career-high 60 catches for 613 yards and four touchdowns in 14 starts last season.
