Former Penn State Lacrosse Player Chris Hogan Retires From NFL

Two-time Super Bowl champion wide receiver and former Penn State lacrosse star Chris Hogan retired from the NFL on Saturday.

Hogan played three seasons of collegiate lacrosse with the Nittany Lions from 2007-2009. He was a productive offensive stalwart, even earning first team All-ECAC honors after his junior season. In pregame introductions on some primetime games, Hogan would reference Penn State lacrosse as his alma mater.

Following his time at Penn State, Hogan played one season of college football with Monmouth.

The accomplished dual-sport athlete signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011 as an undrafted free agent, before bouncing around the practice squads of the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins. Hogan then put in three productive seasons with the Buffalo Bills, which gave way to his most successful landing spot with the New England Patriots.

With the Patriots, he recorded 1,651 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Hogan won two Super Bowls and appeared in another, and was a key role player in Bill Belichick’s playoff machine.

Following his time with the Patriots, Hogan played a season each with the Carolina Panthers and New York Jets.

In March 2021, Hogan would return to his lacrosse roots and sign with Cannons LC of the Premier Lacrosse League. The New Orleans Saints coaxed him back into the NFL prior to the 2021 season, however. He even caught a touchdown pass as recently as week one.
