Kevin O’Connell Waived By Patriots

We’ve become pretty accustomed to the way things work around Foxboro after nearly a decade of the Bill Belichick era yet once in a while we see a roster move that still leaves us shaking our head. That seems to be the case today as the Patriots have waived second year quarterback Kevin O’Connell.

Having arrived at camp as the presumptive backup to Tom Brady, O’Connell has struggled in the pre-season and now finds himself without a team. The move is surprising simply because there is no clear backup in the system and O’Connell seemingly had the job locked up coming into 2009, if not only because he’s been in the system longer. The second year man from San Diego State was a also a third round pick in the 2008 NFL draft so this again leaves the average fan wondering.

With O’Connell gone it leaves Andrew Walter and Brian Hoyer on the roster. In other words, look for the Patriots to go after another veteran before the season begins.
