New England Patriots TE Michael Hoomanawanui said he hopes to be more involved in the passing game this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: The Pats certainly need another reliable TE receiving option given Rob Gronkowski's myriad health issues, but Hoomanawanui's best receiving season was a 13-catch, 146-yard, 3-TD effort in his rookie season (2010) in St. Louis, and even a significant statistical jump likely wouldn't register on the fantasy radar.

New England Patriots impending free-agent TE Michael Hoomanawanui said he hopes to re-sign with the team this offseason.
Huddle Up: Whether he returns to N.E. or not -- and whether starter Rob Gronkowski remains healthy or not -- Hoomanawanui simply is a fantasy non-factor, as is evidenced by his 37 career receptions in 4 NFL seasons.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Michael Hoomanawanui left the Week 11 game against the Carolina Panthers and was unable to return due to a knee injury.
Huddle Up: We'll have to wait for the update as to the injury's severity, but this may hurt the Pats' running game more than the passing game as Hoomanawanui, known more for his blocking, has only 10 catches for 114 yards this season.
