Andrew Walter Released by Patriots – A.J. Feeley a Target?

The Patriots have released potential backup QB Andrew Walter. Walter played for the Raiders last season, but obviously didn’t have what it took to stay with the Patriots this year. Walter was just recently signed by the Patriots a one month and a day ago. The decision leaves Brian Hoyer holding the reigns as the sole back up for Tom Brady. In case you missed it, Kevin O’Connell was waived by the Patriots earlier this week. Hoyer was impressive in the Patriots’ final preseason game so clearly the Patriots have confidence in the undrafted QB.

Coach Belichick had this to say about Walter’s release:

I think Andrew had a lot of positives, and we talked about those when we signed him, and I think they still exist. In the end we still made decisions that are in the best interest of the football team.

When asked about whether or not the team would be seeking at least one more backup in addition to Hoyer, Belichick answered in his definitively “un-definitive” style:

“That’s really a hard question to answer,” he said. “We’ll have to wait and see what our options are, not only what players are available, but also in terms of how we want to manage our roster. There’s so many moving parts to the process, with difficult positions and the overall makeup of the team and looking at the active 45-man roster, then the different players that might or not be available throughout the league.”

All clear now? We thought so too. Thanks Bill! Our best guess to the Patriots’ next target are the murmurs surrounding a potential acquisition of A.J. Feeley now that Michael Vick is officially an Eagle with eligibility to play starting on Week 3. More to come.
