Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are still in the market for a top quarterback this offseason, as the possibility of veteran starter Matthew Stafford joining the fray was swiftly axed after he was traded from the Detroit Lions to the Los Angeles Rams. It seems Tedy Bruschi was furious about Stafford’s rumored aversion to the Pats, even calling him mentally weak for his reported preference.
