On the surface, it appears the team will be riding with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as the signal caller going forward after The Athletic’s Jeff Howe reported that the team isn’t currently aren’t considering pursing Cam Newton in free agency or a trade for Andy Dalton.
“a source has said the Patriots have expressed no interest in signing Cam Newton or trading for Andy Dalton — the two most popular speculated moves — nor do they have the cap space to make such a transaction.
So it’ll be Stidham. It’d hardly be a surprise if they open camp with Hoyer as the starter and force Stidham to wrest away the job, but a dose of adversity should help the kid if that’s the route they choose. Either way, as long as Stidham maintains his pace from last summer, it should be his job.”
The Patriots could very well take a QB in the NFL Draft, but the youngster will still be a project during the 2019 campaign.
