“I think people should know that Jarrett is one of the hardest-working football players I’ve ever been around,” Slayton told hosts Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt. “He’s truly a student of the game, and I think that’s why he’s going to have a chance to be a really good quarterback for the Patriots because I know he’s going to put the time in.
“The arm and all that stuff, you know, that’s all God-given. He’s got that already. I think the separator that makes Tom Brady great is putting the time in and having the knowledge, and I think Jarrett is cut from that same kind of cloth.”
That’s some really high praise for Stidham. No wonder the Patriots don’t seem to be too worried about their quarterback situation.
