Speaking on Sirius NFL Radio, which was visiting Gillette Stadium, Pat's owner Kraft touched on the buzz surrounding Micheal Vick and the Patriots, saying: “We’ve got the No. 1 player at that position in the world as far as I’m concerned and why would we ever want to do anything that would take him off the field for one play?’’
With Vick not in Patriots’ plans, the possibility of adding five-year veteran Cleo Lemon - or another seasoned QB - is more realistic.
Lemon, 29, worked out for team officials Friday. If the Patriots make a move at the position, it would be to add starting experience behind Tom Brady.
The Patriots have 2008 third-round draft choice Kevin O’Connell, third-year player Matt Gutierrez, and rookie free agent Brian Hoyer as backups - none of whom have started a regular-season game.
