Five seasons ago, he’d been cut from his third NFL team and didn’t have a job. Now, there’s enough demand for Chris Hogan autographs that he has his own memorabilia deal.
Steiner Sports has reached an exclusive arrangement for the New England Patriots wide receiver to sign autographed footballs, jerseys, helmets, photos and limited edition pieces. He’s also scheduled for a private signing this spring where fans and collectors can send in their own items to have autographed and/or inscribed.
A native of Wykoff, New Jersey, Hogan played collegiate lacrosse at Penn State University before spending his final year of eligibility on the football team at Monmouth University. An undrafted free agent, Hogan spent time on the practice squads of the San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants and Miami Dolphins before spending four seasons with the Buffalo Bills.
He joined the Patriots in 2016 and played an integral role in the team’s championship run during Super Bowl LI that season. During the AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Hogan had nine receptions for 180 yards and two touchdowns, career highs in all three categories and a team playoff record for receiving yards in a single game. In Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons, Hogan had four receptions for 57 yards in the team’s historic come-from-behind victory.
Hogan joins a recent roster of new signings by Steiner that includes Aaron Rodgers, Steph Curry and Didi Gregorius.
