  • Patriots Cut QBs Matt Corral, Ian Book

    Headshot for Matt Corral

    The Patriots’ flier on Matt Corral produced an early speedbump, with the former third-round pick being placed on the exempt/left squad list. Days later, Corral is no longer with the team. New England waived Corral from the exempt/left squad list and also released Ian Book from its practice squad. Book landed on the Pats’ P-squad […]

  • Bailey Zappe Signed To 53-Man Roster

    Headshot for Mac Jones

    The Patriots signed quarterback Bailey Zappe back to the 53-man roster. The signal-caller was surprisingly waived on cutdown day but added to the practice squad after clearing waivers. But considering New England is releasing Matt Corral, it appears Zappe is now the permanent backup. The last move also means there's still a chance Zappe could emerge as the team's starter at some point during the season, so Mac Jones may be on a short leash moving ahead. The 24-year-old appeared in four games last season and threw for 781 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions while completing 70.7% of his attempts.

    The Patriots were busy reshaping their quarterback depth chart last week, including the surprising decision to waive 2022 fourth-rounder Bailey Zappe. The risk paid off and Zappe was retained via the practice squad, but he has new competition for the backup QB role.

    When the Patriots’ 2022 season ended unceremoniously, some pundits wondered if 2022 fourth-round quarterback Bailey Zappe could battle 2021 first-round pick Mac Jones for the starting gig. Now, heading into the regular season, it’s uncertain if Zappe is even set to be New England’s QB2. [RELATED: Patriots Claim QB Matt Corral] Zappe was a surprise […]

    The 2022 season saw the Patriots fail to make the playoffs for the second time in the post-Tom Brady era. While the players deserve their fair share of blame for the team’s lack of success, New England’s struggles could mostly be attributed to the sideline. With Josh McDaniels having left for Las Vegas, Bill Belichick […]

  • Bailey Zappe, Malik Cunningham Join Patriots Practice Squad

    Headshot for Malik Cunningham

    New England Patriots quarterbacks Bailey Zappe and Malik Cunningham were surprisingly released as teams cut down to 53-man rosters on Tuesday. However, both players went unclaimed on waivers and are now joining the Patriots' practice squad. Mac Jones remains the only active quarterback on the roster for now. It's unclear what Bill Belichick's motive was in making these moves, but it seems like Mac Jones' job security is strong after an offseason of doubt.

    For the second straight day, the Patriots have parted with a depth quarterback. Bailey Zappe has been waived, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The same is true of rookie UDFA Malik Cunningham, notes colleague Tom Pelissero. These moves certainly constitute more of a surprise than New England’s decision to cut Trace McSorley yesterday. The latter was in […]

  • Patriots Waive Bailey Zappe

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    The New England Patriots waived backup quarterback Bailey Zappe in a surprising move on Tuesday, according to a source. With the Patriots also waiving Malik Cunningham on roster-cutdown day, Mac Jones is now the team's only signal-caller on the roster with the 2023 regular season starting next week. However, the Patriots are hoping to get both Zappe and Cunningham back on their practice squad if they clear waivers. There was some early offseason talk about Zappe potentially competing with Jones for the starting gig in training camp this summer, but that never came to fruition and New England is fully committed to helping Jones bounce back after a disastrous offensive showing in 2022. In four games (two starts) in his first NFL season last year, Zappe went 65-for-92 for 781 yards, five touchdowns and three picks.

    The Patriots have cut quarterback Trace McSorley, as Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reports. The former Ravens draftee signed with New England in April to compete for a third-string job behind starter Mac Jones and 2022 fourth-rounder Bailey Zappe. McSorley threw just four passes in this year’s preseason and completed only one of them. […]

  • Bailey Zappe Struggles In Preseason Finale

    Headshot for Bailey Zappe

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 8-of-15 pass attempts for 57 yards in Friday's 23-7 loss to the Tennessee Titans. With Mac Jones sitting out, Zappe started the preseason finale and struggled to move New England's offense. The 24-year-old was sacked four times and averaged just 3.8 yards per attempt in Friday's loss. He threw for 781 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions over four games in 2022. Despite his preseason struggles, Zappe is expected to be New England's backup behind Jones. The former fourth-round pick would only be on the fantasy radar if Jones were to miss any time.

  • Bailey Zappe Efficient In Preseason Opener

    Headshot for Mac Jones

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe completed 12-of-14 passes for 79 yards in Thursday's 20-9 preseason loss to the Houston Texans. Zappe drew the start for New England as the Patriots gave quarterback Mac Jones the night off. The 24-year-old played the entire first half but could only lead the offense to three points. Zappe was efficient on Thursday but averaged just 5.6 yards per attempt. Most of his passing yards came from a 27-yard completion to Tyquan Thornton late in the first quarter. Zappe is New England's backup quarterback and would only be fantasy relevant if Jones were to miss any time.
