Henry, 26, was a second round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Chargers. Over his time with the team, he had 196 receptions for 2,322 yards and 21 touchdowns. This was in four seasons, as the tight end missed the 2018 season with a torn ACL.
New England has been active in free agency this offseason already. Henry is the second tight end that the Patriots have signed. With Jonnu Smith also agreeing to a deal, the Patriots are likely to use more two-tight end sets in 2021.
