“If those calls come then we’ll listen,” said Caserio, per Ian Rapoport.
Hoyer held off Mallett last year to remain the teams’ No. 2 quarterback, but he’s set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of next season, so there’s a chance that they could look to move him now if there’s a reasonable amount of interest in him. The Patriots are seem to always be listening to offers, but there’s no guarantee that a deal for one of the two quarterbacks will get done during the draft. Mallett is under contract for a reasonable amount of money, and Hoyer’s looming departure makes it seem like the Patriots may want to hold on to him as a decent backup option, should something happen to Tom Brady.
