While it’s unlikely he’ll replace Mac Jones as the starter in New England, he could potentially knock one quarterback off the depth chart.

“Patriots draft a QB at the end of the 4th round,” Volin tweeted. “So long, Jarrett Stidham.”

Stidham, a former fourth-round pick out of Auburn, is currently third on the depth chart for the Patriots.

Since entering the NFL in 2019, Stidham has 270 passing yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Patriots might not make a decision on Stidham this early in the offseason, but there’s no question that his long-term status with the team is up in the air.
