FOXBOROUGH – The patriots apparently filled their squads.
Listen to your team news NOW.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN team quarterback Cody Kessler signs. He has played in 17 NFL games over the past three seasons, including 12 starts.
The 26-year-old has played for the Browns, Jaguars and Eagles. Most recently, he was released by the Eagles at the end of the training camp.
Originally, he was a selection of Browns in the third round of the NFL Draft 201
Kessler will star in the quarterback with Tom Brady and rookie Jarrett Stidham.
It is a little interesting that the team is using its open duty seat on Kessler, especially if it has to take another step next week to get Benjamin Watson back into the roster. The idea, when Brian Hoyer was released, was that three quarterbacks would affect Stidham's growth.
