Despite a never-ending stream of trade rumors before, during and after the NFL draft, the Patriots have said over and over they have no interest in trading Mallett. While Mallett is in the final year of his contract, the Patriots can't afford to risk a potential Super Bowl run by not having a pro-ready backup. Jimmy Garoppolo may be the future, but he's not ready to step under center in the "break emergency glass" scenario where Tom Brady goes down. Mallett is familiar with the offense, has a nice strong arm and would be a safer alternative. That said, if Brady went down, we don't know that Mallett would fill in perfectly. So while Mallett is a good backup for Brady, have a better alternative. He's a decent handcuff, but not a critical one. (May 24)

Patriots | Ryan Mallett steps up (Sat Aug 16, 12:19 AM) - New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett (knee) came on in the second half of the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, completing seven of his 11 pass attempts for 92 yards and a touchdown. He also ran four times for nine yards and a score.

Our View: Mallett is getting outplayed by a rookie. That kid is Jimmy Garropolo, the Patriots second-round pick out of Eastern Illinois. Mallett is in the final year of his contract, and this is likely his final season with the Patriots.

Patriots | All three QBs expected to play in preseason game (Thu Aug 14, 12:26 PM) - New England Patriots QBs Tom Brady, Ryan Mallett (knee) and Jimmy Garoppolo are all scheduled to receive playing time during the second preseason game, according to a source.

Patriots | Ryan Mallett moving slowly (Thu Aug 14, 02:01 AM) - New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett (undisclosed) saw more reps in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, than he did the previously day, but he was still moving around gingerly due to an undisclosed lower body injury.

Our View: Mallett is in the final year of his deal, and he's unlikely to be back with this team next year. We'll see if he can hold off rookie Jimmy Garoppolo for the primary backup job behind Tom Brady.
