According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots signed former college star and NFL quarterback Cody Kessler.
The Patriots only had two quarterbacks on the roster prior to the signing. Tom Brady and rookie Jarrett Stidham were lonely in the quarterback room after the team cut Brian Hoyer earlier this season.
Here’s the news from Schefter.
Kessler previously played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns before landing in New England.
The former third-round pick entered the 2019 season as a member of the Jaguars. However, he was cut in camp and then signed with the Eagles just a few days later.
After suffering a concussion during the preseason, the Eagles decided to move on from the former USC quarterback.
