Patriots Rumors: Latest Intel on Adding Veteran QB, Stephen Gostkowski

Tom Brady's replacement will most likely be a quarterback already on the New England Patriots roster.

Jarrett Stidham, Cody Kessler and Brian Hoyer, all of whom are on inexpensive deals, are the three signal-callers the Patriots employ. The combination of trust in Stidham, Hoyer's veteran leadership and minimal salary-cap availability have forced the Patriots into this option.

Even after kicker Stephen Gostkowski's release, the Patriots do not have much room to bring in a big name at any position.
