With just one quarterback currently on their roster, the New England Patriots hosted a former Pittsburgh Steelers cult hero for a tryout Tuesday.
Devlin “Duck” Hodges was one of ten players auditioning in Foxborough on Tuesday ahead of the Patriots’ season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
Hodges signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2019, and started six games with a 3-3 record his rookie season. He passed for 1,063 yards, five touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Hodges signed with the Los Angeles Rams this past offseason, but was cut at the conclusion of training camp.
New England also auditioned defensive back Grayland Arnold, running back Nick Bawden, guard Jake Eldrenkamp, tight end Miller Forristall, center Lamont Gaillard, tight end Nakia Griffin-Stewart, defensive back Joshua Moon, defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao, and wide receiver Connor Wedington.
