For those into these sorts of things, Chris Hogan has switched lockers. He's now right next to Tom Brady.

Could Hogan’s locker move be purely coincidental? Sure. But I don’t like to live in a world of coincidences. I like to live in a world where Chris Hogan saw his stat line of 1 catch for 8 yards in the season opener against the Chiefs and was so overcome with grief that he demanded to have his locker switched so that he could have an optimal amount of time in close proximity to Tom Brady. It has been empirically proven by John Brenkus of Sports Science that merely being within a three foot radius of Tom Brady’s aura can provide essential minerals that help achieve peak performance.
Not only that, but being so close to Brady will also allow Hogan to further improve his chemistry with the GOAT. I can see it now, Hogan and Brady huddled around their lockers after practice, with Brady providing an in depth, chapter by chapter, analysis of his upcoming book The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance (Now available for pre-order on Amazon and other book retailers).
The big mystery is, whose locker did Hogan take so that he could be so close to Brady? Though I do not have an in depth knowledge of the layout of the Patriots locker room, I would surmise that after watching the blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Julian Edelman voluntarily gave up his locker for Hogan. Just a totally selfless move from a totally selfless player. Even though Jules is out for the year, he’s still trying to find ways to help the team get better. There truly are no days off.
