A potential Jarrett Stidham trade: After selecting a quarterback in the 2022 draft (and adding another as an undrafted free agent), the Patriots could be looking to trim the team’s depth chart at the position.


According to multiple reports, including Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, the Patriots are currently “working on” a trade with the Raiders that would send backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham to Las Vegas.

In addition, according to Breer, the two teams would exchange late-round draft picks as part of the trade.

Stidham has been with the Patriots since being picked in the fourth round in 2019. The former Auburn quarterback has two touchdowns and four interceptions with a 50-percent completion percentage in his NFL career.
