    While I like Mike Florio's opinions and his site is a "Rumor mongoring" site, I'll wait for someone else to confirm.

    BUT, this does beg the question: Does Jeff Darlington's "source" not know the difference between Michael Vick and Cleo Lemon? I'll betcha Darlington's "source" was watching Lemon from afar and thought it was Vick.

    Remind me never to ask the "source" an opinion of a girl. He'll tell me she's hot and she'll turn out to look like Rosanne Barr.

    Siging Cleo could bear fruit should starters get injured

    Nothing wrong with getting a debriefing from a former division QB who might be hoping such cooperations might land him a job.

    True. It's just a regurgitation of a rumor, and not proof of anything, really.

    It's summer ... hot and humid ... QB arms are tired ... time for a little Lemon-aid.

    Seriously, what does Cleo bring to the table aside from the worst name ever for an NFL quarterback?

    #1 - They can bring him in if they want to... I just pray it never ever gets to that. They had a couple of guys coming in right around the time Brady went down last season, but opted against it. We'll see.

    #2 - Blast that Real World ! Just when the images of the hot girl are gone, he returns with new pics !

    Update - ESPN'S John Clayton reports the Pats are expected to sign Lemon. (FWIW)

    The Patriots, in the market for a backup quarterback, have worked out NFL veteran Cleo Lemon and are expected to sign him Saturday.

    Lemon was the quarterback who had a mid-afternoon workout Friday. There had been reports the Patriots worked out Michael Vick, but Lemon was the quarterback who was on the field throwing with front office people watching. Vick was in Virginia at a bankruptcy court hearing.

    A Lemon signing could mean the Patriots might not be interested in bringing in Vick in the near future. Bill Belichick didn't rule out interest in Vick, but he also wouldn't say that they were interested on Friday.

    Lemon is a 29-year-old veteran who has played for the Ravens, Chargers, Dolphins and Jaguars.

    IIRC, the deal Davis offered to trade Burgess included Vollmer, O'Connell and another player. Maybe KOC is still part of a deal and BB is seeking a replacement. ...just throwing it out here

    I, for one, will be royally p***ed if that happens.

    In any case, the "fact" that the Pats need a backup QB is a media creation. It's almost as Matt Cassel's performance last year proves that they need a veteran backup, rather than trusting O'Connell.

    It is TC. They might need another guy to throw as they do something weird like try out Defensive Linemen as Wide Receivers or something. No need to panic, even if he is signed. If he is on the final roster, then panic.:D

    It won't include Vollmer or it better not. Most likely it's nothing more than a coincidence although Crable's absence so far and Russell showing up overweight for the Raiders adds a little to the coincidence. O'Connell for Burgess is all I would pay.

    More likely, we're looking at Brady, O'Connell, Lemon as the QB group with t Gurierrez and Hoyer competing for the PS (if Gutz is still eligible).

    Used kitties often have bad habits and aren't as popular for that reason. :snob:

    Can he still predict the future and talk to spirits from beyond the grave? :cool:

    Personally, I would take any of O'Connell, Gutz, and/or Hoyer over Lemon.

    If they are gonna sign another QB, I'd much rather them sign Brian Griese or even Andrew Walter than Lemon. Lemon is awful.

    I don't think Lemon is awful, I think he has some nice qualities as a player. He has ok size at 6-2, 215 and he seems fairly athletic. He also seems to have a strong arm. He's reportedly a smart player who can read coverages. People are probably thinking of his days in Miami but that team had no talent at all on offense, the one guy they did got hurt -- Brown. I remember the OL was terrible and he looked good despite that by moving well in the pocket.

    Lemon is what BB looks for in QB. Which is first and foremost he won't cost you the game.

    Lemon has a 1.8 int %. How low is that? Matt Cassel 2.3% Peyton Manning 2.8%. Favre's was 3.3%. Tom Brady 2.4%.
