New England waived Lewerke on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Lewerke never had a real shot at making the final team, with all of Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer around, but he could be a candidate to resurface on the practice squad.
The Patriots have re-signed Lewerke, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.
Lewerke, whom the Patriots originally signed as an undrafted free agent back in April, was let go by the team just days ago, but he's back in the fold now as QB depth/insurance in advance of training camp practices. He's firmly behind Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer in the team's signal-caller pecking order, however.
The Patriots cut Lewerke on Sunday, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.
Lewerke signed as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State, where he completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,079 yards, 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while also rushing for 363 yards and three touchdowns in 2019. With him and J'Mar Smith both let go by the team Sunday, they Patriots will roll with Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer in camp.
