Ian Rapoport is now reporting that Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater will also be visiting with the Patriots on Wednesday.
- Albert Breer adds that the Patriots also met with UCF QB Blake Bortles last week.
This only adds that the intrigue regarding the Patriots possible draft plans and whether or not they include a quarterback in the early rounds of the draft.
Ian Rapoport reports that a source has informed him that Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel has been “spotted” in New England and is set to visit with the Patriots on Wednesday.
- Rapoport adds that Manziel’s agent, Erik Burkhardt, would not confirm the meeting.
Several teams will bring prospects in for visits, but it’s at least interesting that he is expected to meet with the Patriots.
New England is notorious for doing their due diligence on several players whether in free agency or the draft.
Manziel’s draft stock appears to be improving after a solid Pro Day. The Vikings recently met with him and the Browns are expected to bring him in for a visit as well. There are several teams in the top-ten who could all use a quarterback including the Jaguars, Raiders and Texans.
The Buccaneers have also shown some interest in quarterback prospects as well, so they can’t be ruled out.
