The Patriots will release Kessler on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Patriots are left with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as the only quarterbacks on their roster, setting the stage for an addition via free agency or the draft. Kessler was brutal in his previous stints with the Browns and Jaguars, and he hasn't appeared in a game since 2018. He served as the No. 3 quarterback in New England for part of last season.
