Foxborough, Massachusetts – Only hours after the NFL suspended two-time MVP quarterback, Tom Brady, for the first four games of the 2015 season, New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft and head coach, Bill Belichick, announced the signing of the player taking Brady’s place for the first month of the season.
Quarterback Patrick Edwards was introduced Tuesday afternoon at Gillette Stadium in front of team shareholders and a few hundred members of the media.
Edwards is an unknown player that has never appeared in an NFL or collegiate level game, but according to Kraft and Belichick, can throw just as well as Tom Brady.
“I do find it odd that there is no available information on Patrick Edwards’ playing career or even where this alleged all-star level player was found,” Said senior writer, Owen Boss, of the Boston Herald.
“However, he looks even better than Tom Brady, so I’m pretty excited to see what he can do!” Boss added, while attempting to take a selfie with Edwards from twenty feet away.
In addition to Brady’s suspension for his involvement in the “Deflategate” scandal, the Patriots were also fined one million dollars and will forfeit their first-round selection in the 2016 NFL draft and fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft.
