Patriots quarterback: Top options for the team in 2021
Feb. 28, 2024 – 23:05 – A look at Patriots quarterback options: The 2020 season is a weird one for the New England Patriots, largely because many people never thought that legacy quarterback Tom Brady would ever play for another team. Betting on Brady was, after all, the reason they were comfortable trading away two backup New England quarterbacks in Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett.
When looking for a replacement, they signed Cam Newton to a one-year deal. Taking a chance on Newton was questionable from the start, as he has struggled with injuries for most of his career. Many believed that starting duties should have been given to Jarrett Stidham or that the two men should have split them.
But with the one-year Newton deal coming to an end, the Patriots are going to have to look around the league to figure out what to do next season. So, we have created a list of who could fill the Patriots quarterback position in 2021.
