Pats sign Cody Kessler, adding QB depth behind Tom Brady
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have signed Cody Kessler to their 53-man roster, adding some additional depth behind quarterback Tom Brady.
For his career Kessler has completed 64 percent (224 of 349) of his passes, throwing for 2,215 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions.
Kessler’s addition provides a more veteran presence behind Brady. Rookie Jarrett Stidham is Brady’s backup, but had a rough debut when he relieved Brady late in the Patriots’ 30-14 win over the New York Jets and threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown.
