Should Thorson clear waivers on Tuesday, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list.

Lewerke recently tried out for New York a few weeks ago, so he was clearly on their radar as a potential addition. 

Lewerke, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Michigan State back in 2020. He later signed a three-year, $2.287 million dollar rookie contract with the Patriots and was on and off of their practice squad in 2020.

During his college career at Michigan State, Lewerke completed 57.7 percent of his passes for 8,293, 47 touchdowns and 32 interceptions over the course of four seasons and 41 games. He also rushed for 1,255 yards and 10 touchdowns.
