The Baltimore Ravens snatched quarterback Malik Cunningham off New England’s follow squad on Tuesday, and Patriots offensive deal with Trent Brown took an obvious shot at his staff on social media.
“Go flourish the place your expertise is revered,” wrote Brown on social media in a caption of an image of Cunningham in his previous Patriots jersey.
Cunningham confirmed flashes through the summer season of being an intriguing quarterback prospect. In Week 1 of the preseason in opposition to the Texans, he was 3-of-4 passing for 19 yards whereas including 5 carries for 34 yards and a landing, the staff’s just one in a 20-9 loss.
With New England having nothing to play for the remainder of the season – and quarterbacks Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe clearly not being the reply – it was unusual that the Patriots did not take a critical take a look at Cunningham as their starter for the remainder of the season.
The previous Louisville quarterback performed from 2018-22 for the Cardinals. He appeared in 56 video games and accomplished 62.6 % of his passes for 9,664 yards (8.7 yards per try), 70 touchdowns and 29 interceptions whereas including 619 carries for 3,182 yards and one other 50 touchdowns.
The Patriots rank final in scoring offense (13 factors per recreation) and twenty eighth in whole offense (291.4 yards per recreation), together with twenty fifth passing (189.5 yards per recreation). Jones and Zappe have mixed to throw 15 interceptions, the third-most within the league.
Brown’s touch upon social media suggests he believes the Patriots did not recognize what they’d in Cunningham.
