The New England Patriots might seem set at the quarterback position. The Patriots had a very log of season of trial and error. They were very proactive in signing the pieces that they though would help them be successful. And for the most part, they did a very good job of that. The team was also able to pick up Cam Newton, who had a great week 1 against the Miami Dolphins.
Bill Belicheck has had very good things to say about Newton in the past. And it seems like he is ringing true to the expectations.
“I have learned a lot about Cam,” Belichick explained. “I had never really had any interaction with Cam, and then when we signed him, we had some phone calls and WebEx meetings and stuff like that.
“Being with him every day, he’s an extremely hard-working player,” Belichick continued. “First guy in, last one out type of guy. He really has studied hard and he has spent a lot of extra time trying to learn our offense and our communication and our calls, and nomenclature and so forth. Yeah, I’ve been very impressed with that. He’s done a good job of picking it up. He’s a very skilled athlete and we’re just working through it day-by-day.”
Report: Patriots Are Signing Former Bengals Quarterback
Now a new report has come out that shows that New England has signed yet another quarterback, at least to the practice squad.
The Patriots are apparently signing free-agent quarterback Jake Dolegala a source has said on Monday night.
Dolegala did not get drafted coming out of Central Connecticut last spring. He was with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2019 before being released back on Sept. 5.
He was 37-of-61 on passes for a total of 347 yards with two touchdowns in the preseason last year. He also ran the ball a few times but failed to get much out of it.
The Patriots have two spots open on their 53-man roster. But, as it turns out, they no longer have any room on the practice sqaud.
What do you think about this signing?
