2020 Fantasy Outlook
Though not a splashy signing, Byrd has a chance to compete with Marqise Lee for the Patriots' No. 4 wideout role, a vacancy open now that Phillip Dorsett is no longer with the team. If Byrd can claim the assignment, he'd work behind veteran slot maven Julian Edelman, bounce-back candidate Mohamed Sanu and 2019 first-rounder N'Keal Harry. Such a context would limit Byrd's fantasy upside but put him an injury away from a key role in New England's offense. The 27-year-old wideout is coming off a 2019 campaign in which he caught a career-high 32 passes for 359 yards and a TD in 11 games for Arizona. Even if the 5-9, 180-pounder doesn't end up being a high-volume target with his new team, the speedy Byrd does at least offer special teams value. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, $1.35 million contract with the Patriots in March of 2020.
Gets $600k guaranteed
WRNew England Patriots
March 20, 2020
Byrd's one-year. $1.35 million contract with the Patriots includes $600,000 guaranteed, plus another $900,000 available via incentives, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.
ANALYSIS
This contract suggests the Patriots are cautiously optimistic about Byrd earning a spot on the 53-man roster. He's still at the mercy of whatever else might happen this offseason, but it's easy to see how the 27-year-old might fit as a speedy, cheaper replacement for free agent Phillip Dorsett. The Cardinals moved Byrd in and out of the lineup last season, with the final product being a 32-359-1 receiving line on 46 targets (7.8 YPT) in 11 games. He mostly saw shorter passes and also got a few deep looks, while intermediate targets were few and far between.

Byrd's efforts on the Panthers' practice squad were rewarded by a promotion to Carolina's 53-man roster for eight games last season. As a reserve receiver, his involvement was understandably limited, but Byrd still managed to score twice from his 10 receptions. He'll once again aim to make the team this season.
Byrd spent most of his rookie year on the Panthers practice squad, but did make one appearance during the regular season, catching his lone target for 16 yards. Like last year, the local product is in competition with Brenton Bersin and Keyarris Garrett for a roster spot this term.
Will compete for a roster spot this season.
