The Bills extended a qualifying offer to restricted free agent WR Chris Hogan prior to the league deadline Wednesday, but it was just the low tender giving Buffalo only the right to match any offer. On Thursday Hogan is reportedly visiting with a Bills division rival.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Hogan is visiting with the Patriots today.
Buffalo RFA WR Chris Hogan visiting NE today, per league source. Pats could sign him to offer sheet that Bills would have 5 days to match.

As Schefter stated, if Hogan were to sign an offer sheet with New England, the Bills would have five days to match. If they do not there would not be any compensation due Buffalo because Hogan was an undrafted rookie. Had the Bills put a second or first rounder tender on Hogan that would’ve been the compensation had he been signed away by another club.
