The Patriots are adding an extra arm to the mix.

According to Tim Graham of, the Patriots are signing Jake Dolegala to their practice squad.

Dolegala spent 2019 with the Bengals, making the team as an undrafted rookie from Central Connecticut. He was waived as they cut to 53 this year.

The Patriots have Cam Newton, Brian Hoyer, and Jarrett Stidham on their 53-man roster. Stidham was inactive last week.

  1. I think it’s smart to bring this guy in….the eventual outcome with Cam is a complete unknown & while they may franchise him for an additional year, it’s good to explore all options for the future….
    & with COVID & the possibility of Cam getting hurt by trying to extend a play as a runner, the Pats need to be prepared for any scenario that they may have to face now or in the future…..
    Bill seeing the big picture or the forest thru the trees…..he just always seems to be a step ahead of most when it comes to roster management
    So glad we have him captaining the ship!!!

  2. Also…. MAYBE Stidham hurt his hip worse than originally thought or reported & may have to go on IR to give it plenty of time to heal without surgery to correct it OR he needs to have surgery & won’t be available the rest of this year……but I hope it’s neither of those things & it’s just Bill doing some extensive evaluation now that he can carry 16 guys on practice squad & really tinker with it to find a hidden gem or two…..

  3. Is he a good scrambler? Could be they want a good scout team guy that can be a Russell Wilson type guy to practice against.
