Former Eagles backup quarterback Mike Kafka was among the biggest names to clear waivers following Friday’s final cuts. Despite the fact that Kafka was due minimum base salaries in 2012 and 2013, no team deemed him worthy of a claim after he was waived by Philly.
But there is still some interest in Kafka around the league, and the New England Patriots are one of the teams that is at least somewhat intrigued by him.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Patriots worked out Kafka on Tuesday.
The only two quarterbacks the Patriots kept on their final 53-man roster were Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett.
UPDATE 3:39 p.m. ET: This item previously stated that Kafka had practice squad eligibility remaining. He does not. A tip of the cap to Adam Caplan for the clarification.
