Hogan, 33, has entered his name at the Premier Lacrosse League entry draft on March 25, he confirmed Saturday.
"As many of you know, my roots are in lacrosse, and I'm eager to fight for a roster spot with the very best in the world!" He posted on Twitter on Saturday.
Hogan was a four-time letter winner and winner at Penn State, where he played lacrosse from 2007 to 2010 following a highly decorated career at Ramapo High School in northern New Jersey. His trainer once said he"could be the best middie in Division I."
In his intro video before prime-time games as part of the New England Patriots, Hogan announced his alma mater as"Penn State lacrosse." He used his final year of eligibility to play football at Monmouth (N.J.) University.
Hogan did not say whether he is retiring from the NFL.
He played last year for its New York Jets, catching 14 passes for 118 yards in five matches. The Jets were so depleted at wide receiver that Hogan, who signed in training camp, became an immediate starter. He landed on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain and has been waived from IR in December.
His best years came with the Patriots, from 2016 to 2018. He began his career with the Buffalo Bills.
In a 2019 meeting with US Lacrosse Magazine,'' Hogan said he'd"absolutely" be interested in playing lacrosse again. He owned a stick, he explained, but had not worn gloves in eight decades.
In 2018, Hogan allegedly became an investor in the Premier Lacrosse League, which consists of eight teams following a recent merger with Major League Lacrosse. The entrance draft is for players who never have played in the PLL.
