  • Cody Kessler: Cut by New England

    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.

  • Patriots' Cody Kessler: Back with New England

    Kessler agreed to a contract with the Patriots on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Per the report, Kessler stayed in the New England area since being released by the team earlier this month. He'll now rejoin the Patriots to add a layer of depth and experience at quarterback behind Tom Brady.

  • Cody Kessler: Parts ways with New England

    Kessler was waived by the Patriots on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Kessler signed with the Pats in the latter stages of September to provide additional quarterback depth, but the team now feels good enough to roll with just Tom Brady and Jarrett Stidham. Kessler signed with the Eagles in May shortly after being let go by the Jaguars, but he didn't make the team's initial 53-man roster.

  • Patriots' Cody Kessler: Inks deal with Pats

    Kessler signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Tom Brady and his backup Jarrett Stidham aren't dealing with any apparent injuries, so it's unclear why the Patriots brought Kessler aboard. There's no reason to question the method to Bill Belichick's madness, however, as Kessler is a decent backup. He has played in 17 career games between the Browns and Jaguars, completing 64.1 percent of his passes for 2,215 yards (6.3 YPA), eight touchdowns and five interceptions.

  • Patriots' Cody Kessler: Adds depth behind Brady

    The Patriots are expected to sign Kessler to a contract Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    He'll give the Patriots some added quarterback depth behind Tom Brady, joining rookie Jarrett Stidham in the team's backup mix. Per Reiss, having another signal-caller around could come in handy if Brady -- who was limited in practice last Wednesday and Thursday before working fully Friday -- takes any days off in the coming weeks.

  • Eagles' Cody Kessler: Let loose by Eagles

    Philadelphia waived Kessler on Friday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

    Kessler got the start in Philadelphia's third preseason matchup over Josh McCown but was ultimately outplayed by the veteran, who threw for 192 yards and two touchdowns compared to Kessler's 34 yards. It appears that the Eagles have elected to go with McCown, Nate Sudfeld (wrist) and Clayton Thorson -- barring his release prior to the Saturday deadline -- to back up Carson Wentz this season.

  • Eagles' Cody Kessler: Outplayed by McCown

    Kessler completed three of five passes for 34 yards and rushed once for no gain in Thursday's 26-15 preseason loss to the Ravens.

    Kessler got the start with Carson Wentz taking the night off, but he was significantly outplayed by veteran Josh McCown, who threw for 192 yards and two touchdowns after taking over for Kessler late in the first quarter. The 26-year-old quarterback seems destined for the No. 3 role behind Wentz and McCown. The game was shortened early in the fourth quarter due to lightning, so at least rookie fifth-rounder Clayton Thorson didn't get a chance to try to leapfrog Kessler on the depth chart.
