Patriots release Cody Kessler

The New England Patriots have released third-string quarterback Cody Kessler, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

What It Means:

The former 3rd round draft pick from 2016 was signed by the Patriots last October, released, and then re-signed. He had been operating as the team's third-string option. Kessler's release leaves the Patriots with two quarterbacks on their roster, Sophomore Jarrett Stidham, and veteran Brian Hoyer.

Kessler has a career record of 2 wins and 10 losses in his 12 career starts. Since being drafted, he has compiled a total of 224 completions on 349 attempts (64.2 percent) for 2,215 yards (6.3 per attempt), 8 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions.

Timmy Jernigan reportedly signs with Texans

The Houston Texans and free agent defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles, have agreed to a contract, reports Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

What It Means:

It is reportedly a one-year, $3.75 million contract, with $1.25 million guaranteed. Jernigan figures to play a larger role for the Texans after being a rotational piece for the Eagles last season. He was limited to 10 games last season due to injury but received positive grades from Pro Football Focus against the rush (67.5) and against the pass (68.0). Jernigan will turn 28 at the end of September.

Jernigan recorded 2.0 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, 3 quarterback hits, and 3 pressures over 274 snaps last season. He ranked 66th on Pro Football Focus among 121 interior defenders to play at least 186 defensive snaps.

Tyrod Taylor 'in driver seat' to start for Chargers

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor is expected to start, per head coach Anthony Lynn.

What It Means:

"He’s in the driver's seat, but nothing is finalized," Lynn said. The Chargers reportedly are not expected to sign or trade for a veteran quarterback, so Taylor's current competition only consists of 2019 fifth-round pick Easton Stick, who didn't see the field as a rookie. Taylor also barely played last season, but while playing under Lynn for the Buffalo Bills from 2015-17, he averaged 201.3 passing yards and 35.8 rushing yards a game with 65 touchdowns (51 passing, 14 rushing) and 16 interceptions. The Chargers are still widely expected to select a quarterback in the first round of the draft.

Taylor was the QB10 (2015), QB8 (2016), and QB21 (2017) in terms of FanDuel points per game during the aforementioned three-year stretch. He performed either at or above league average in numberFire's adjusted passing metric each of those three seasons.

Jadeveon Clowney, Titans having talks

The Tennessee Titans and the agents of free agent edge player Jadeveon Clowney, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks, have been in talks, per general manager Jon Robinson.

What It Means:

Clowney was reportedly seeking an average annual salary of $20 million, but Dianna Russini of ESPN reports that he's now willing to take less. Clowney was limited to 3.0 sacks and 7 tackles for loss in 2019 after recording at least 9.0 sacks and 16.0 tackles for loss each of the previous two seasons, but he remains one of the best at his position against the run and also excels as a pass-rusher. The addition would serve as a sizable upgrade for a Titans team that came one game short of the Super Bowl last season. Clowney turned 27 in February.

Clowney recorded 4 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 1 interception, 13 quarterback hits, and 30 pressures in 13 games for the Seahawks last season. He graded out in the top-10 (87.3) on Pro Football Focus among the 63 edge defenders to play at least 535 defensive snaps.

Patriots' Jarrett Stidham on 'inside track' for starting job

New England Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham "appears to have the inside track on the Patriots' starting job," writes Jeff Howe of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Howe acknowledges that things could change, but Brian Hoyer and Cody Kessler are the only other quarterbacks on the roster and the Patriots reportedly aren't interested in any of the remaining free agents. It's also unlikely that they select a Week 1 starter in the draft, setting Stidham up as the favorite. He was taken 133rd overall last year and attempted just 4 passes in the regular season as a rookie.

Stidham completed 61-of-91 passes (67.0 percent) for 731 yards (8.0 per attempt) with 4 touchdowns and 1 interception last preseason. He had the sixth-highest overall passing grade (72.2) and second-best adjusted completion percentage (84.1) on Pro Football Focus among the 20 quarterbacks with at least 68 preseason dropbacks.
