    Did The New England Patriots Win The Trade?

    The New England Patriots trade away their backup QB Jarrett Stidham and a 2023 seventh-round draft pick to the Las Vegas Raiders for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick, reported Mike Reiss. Unfortunately, Jarrett Stidham has found his time in the NFL pretty tough. He once was next on the thrown when former New England Patriots’ QB Tom Brady decided to walk away. However, he’s proven nothing since his time in the NFL. Stidham was drafted in 2019 from Auburn University. Since 2019, he’s started zero NFL games and had 48 passing attempts, 24 completions, and two touchdowns to four interceptions, according to ESPN. Not to mention, in three seasons he’s played a total of eight games.

    While he’s left many fans in limbo simply because they haven’t seen him enough, he’s reuniting with familiar faces at the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders HC Josh McDaniels has been the Patriots OC for the past three seasons. Stidham will join McDaniels and Raiders star, QB Derek Carr. It seems that he will compete for backup QB with Nick Mullens this offseason to see if he makes the team.

    Musical Chairs for the New England Patriots

    One must admit that while he’s underachieved as a Patriot, the environment has been a game of musical chairs since he arrived in 2019. In his rookie season, Brady began beefing with the front office and Patriots HC Bill Belichick. Ultimately, this led to the departure of Brady and the signing of veteran QB Cam Newton. Many had high hopes for Newton; however, he let many down as well. In 2020, many believed Stidham would get his opportunity to play and show the world he can produce. While playing lackluster, Newton manages to keep the sport for the entirety of the season. The following season, rookie QB Mac Jones was determined to beat everyone out for the starting job and the Patriots haven’t looked back since.

    Stidham remains with one year remaining on his rookie contract. He’s scheduled to earn, $965,000, per ESPN. The New England Patriots have a tight salary cap and shipping Stidham off absolutely helped clear space going forward.

    Things are uncertain with Stidham, however, the Raiders receiving a great teammate is. His former teammate and All-Pro safety Devin McCourty spoke extremely high of him on his podcast, “Double Coverage”.

    “To me, there were weeks where he was just on point,” Devin McCourty said on a March 2020 episode. “And those were some of our best weeks as a defense, mainly because Stiddy ate us up in practice leading up to the game, and I think put more pressure on us. So I really admire just how hard he works, and then I’ve got to know him off the field as well. He’s a really good guy. Young guy, but very mature.”
