LaCosse moved on to New England thereafter, finishing his career with the Patriots over the last three seasons.
In total, LaCosse’s career saw him play in 34 games with 14 starts, 40 receptions, 403 yards receiving and two touchdowns. The 29-year-old LaCosse was a free agent at the time of his retirement announcement.
