New England Patriots Release 4th String Quarterback Jonathan Crompton
The New England Patriots decided to cut 2nd year quarterback Jonathan Crompton on Monday to save some cap room while narrowing down their roster. This leaves the backup job up for grabs with last years backup Brian Hoyer and this years rookie Ryan Mallett competing for the backup job.
While many fans believe Mallett has the ability to take the job from Hoyer if he puts the work in I disagree with making Mallett the backup as a rookie. Mallett needs to be on the bench as a 3rd stringer learning the teams playbook. Hoyer is in a contract year this season. He needs to be the backup this season for that reason so New England knows whether they have a legit backup in Hoyer or whether they should hand the backup keys over to Ryan Mallett in 2012.
New England should bench Brady after 2 drives in each of their 4 preseason games. allowing both Hoyer and Mallett to play 1 full half of football in the preseason. New England hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars in their preseason opener next Thursday night.
Jacksonville has one of the worst secondaries in the league. Besides Rashean Mathis and Dawan Landry there is no proven player on the Jaguars secondary.
