    That would be Mike Hartline QB Kentucky. He is Brian Hartline's brother. The QB spent time on Indy's Practice Squad last year. Tall and skinny at 6'6" and a mere 210. Looks like another arm for training camp. I spoke with a recent Kentucky grad and he said Hartline is not very good.

    Team didn't make an announcement and this flew under the radar. It was a tweet by Hartline that first highlighted the move and Patriots Football Weekly is now confirming it.

    camp arm but a candidate for the practice squad, given that Hoyer has just 1 year left on his contract.

    Hartline could have been drafted, but got busted for public intoxication/ disorderly conduct at KY.

    Hoyer is a RFA. Although the Pats will most likely tender him to keep him one more year.

    I realize that, but like everyone else I think it is a given he gets a tender, maybe the 2nd round tender, and is back at least through the preseason.

    ideal scenario: Hoyer and Mallett are both awesome in exhibition games, leading someone to offer at least a 2013 3rd rounder for Hoyer (maybe up to a 2nd with performance conditions), Mallett gets promoted to backup, and we have a developmental QB on the practice squad.

    Assuming they tender Hoyer, their options are to trade him now, trade him during the summer if/when some team loses a QB, or let him go as an UFA next year, with a comp pick in 2014. If some team makes him an offer and gives BB a 4 for him before the draft, I think he's gone. BB would cash in that investment. Keeping him during the spring and summer just reduces the reps that the others would get. In 2012, I think it's Brady, Mallet, plus either this kid or a late-round/UDFA.

    He completed .662 of his passes his senior year.
    Next on the list, just a tick behind him, was Cam Newton with .661.
    23 TD's and 9 INT's.

    Good size. Good developmental prospect.
    "Clumsy when running, especially to his left."
    What QB does that sound like?

    You people are brutal. They signed him to a futures contract in January. He will be gone before camp... We have a 3rd QB on the PS, been there all year, resigned him in January too, most of you probably don't even know his name. Jonathan Crompton.

    We signed him to a future contract several weeks ago.

    ERRRRRR WRONG! We cut Crompton last year, he was one of the last cuts before the season started I think. He's with the Redskins now.

    I really don't think we are trading our #2 QB that we have developed for years for a future #3.
    Even if he leaves after the year for no comp, its better to have a reliable backup than a future 3

    A necessary part of the "ideal scenario" that I described was having Mallett distinguish himself in the preseason, demonstrating that he would be a reliable backup, and also the 3-rounder I mentioned would become a 2 based on playing time/performance of Hoyer for his new team
