With a draft class of quarterbacks that has been deemed uneven at best, the Patriots appear ready to add a name to the pool that might attract more interest.
According to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe, the Patriots have fielded multiple calls for backup Ryan Mallett.
The Patriots drafted the damaged-goods Mallett in the third round of the 2011 Draft, but seem willing to move him.
With long-time proponent Mike Lombardi in Cleveland, the Browns will always be on the list of usual suspects, though there’s apparently interest from other teams as well.
The Patriots would have to add one to replace him, as Mike Kafka is the only other quarterback on the roster behind Tom Brady.
