With the departure of Tom Brady this offseason, the Patriots are looking for a new starting quarterback.

New England selected Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft and is perceived to be a possible heir apparent to Brady.

In addition to Stidham, the Patriots signed veteran Brian Hoyer for a third stint in Foxborough.

Bill Belichick and Alabama coach Nick Saban have a relationship that stretches back decades.

Might there be something going on behind the scenes.
