FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Based on the offseason the Patriots are having, wide receivers coach Chad O’Shea might be the happiest man in New England.

The receiving corps already was loaded. The Patriots led the league in passing touchdowns last season, and Coach Bill Belichick added to the arsenal.

He snatched restricted free agent Chris Hogan away from the Bills, and at last weekend’s draft, he picked Malcolm Mitchell in the fourth round.

“We’re real excited about the players we’ve added,” O’Shea said. “I have a lot of respect for the players we currently have in our room who were with us last year, but they’re also excited to work with different teammates.”

Mitchell was an explosive wide receiver at Georgia praised for his route-running and leadership.

“We were impressed with Malcolm as a person,” O’Shea said. “We were impressed with him physically and with his ability to catch the ball. Very competitive in all areas of the game. He was a guy that was very impressive in a very competitive league, and then he was very impressive when he came here on his visit, as far as we spent a lot of time with him, and mentally he proved to do a good job for us.”

Mitchell and Hogan project to be roster locks. In Buffalo, Hogan was as tough as they come. He didn’t miss a game during his three seasons with the Bills and played through torn wrist ligaments last December.

He was rewarded with a three-year, $12 million deal in Foxborough, and according to O’Shea, Hogan’s meticulousness made him an attractive target.

“He looks like he’s a detailed player, whose a player that really takes pride in his fundamentals, his technique,” O’Shea said. “Very competitive on the field, he gives great effort. Looks as though he works very hard on the field, and that’s why we were excited about him.”

The Patriots also signed veteran Nate Washington in free agency and drafted Arizona State’s Devin Lucien in the seventh round. On a roster that already includes Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson and Chris Harper, not to mention Matthew Slater, wide receiver is shaping up to be one of the fiercest competitions at training camp this summer.

“I think that anytime you have depth at the position, it helps everybody,” O’Shea said.

DOLPHINS: Laremy Tunsil spoke to the media Saturday and addressed a video of him smoking marijuana in a gas mask that cost him millions of dollars in the NFL draft and raised concerns about his character.

The biggest question may take years to answer: Did the Dolphins gamble wisely when they ended Tunsil’s draft freefall by taking him with the 13th pick?

Tunsil believes they did.

“Everybody’s got their own opinions,” he said cheerfully. “I’m the only one who knows what kind of true character I am. That’s for me to prove to everybody.”

CHIEFS: Rookie Tyreek Hill said fans have every right to be mad at him after his domestic abuse case. But he insists he has changed and is trying to make the most of a second chance.

Hill joined other rookies in Kansas City on Saturday for the start of a three-day minicamp.

The Chiefs drafted the speedy return man in the fifth round, despite Hill pleading guilty last August to abusing and strangling his pregnant girlfriend.

The draft choice by Kansas City was sharply criticized by many fans on social media, with some saying they would boycott Chiefs games.

JAGUARS: Cornerback Jalen Ramsey is wearing No. 38 during the team’s rookie camp. He can’t wait to get rid of it.

The fifth overall pick in the NFL draft wants to wear No. 23 in 2016. Getting it probably is going to cost him, and Ramsey is ready to pay whatever it takes.

“Honestly, shoes, cash, everything,” he said.

Safety James Sample, a second-year player from Louisville, currently has No. 23. Team policy requires players to work out number swaps on their own. And those usually include financial agreements.

Since he’s signed on to be a Jordan Brand athlete, Ramsey wants Michael Jordan’s famed No. 23.

The only question: How much will it cost?

“We’ll see,” he said.
