Quarterback Jarrett Stidham’s run with the Patriots seems to be coming to an end.
Albert Breer of SI.com reports that the Patriots and Raiders are at work to complete a transaction who would send Stidham to Las Vegas. The trade would also include an exchange of late-round draft picks.
Stidham was a 2019 fourth round pick and he played in eight games with the Patriots in his first two seasons. He was 24-of-48 for 270 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions in those appearances. He missed the first half of last season while recovering from a back injury and was the third string behind Mac Jones and Brian Hoyer on his return to the active roster.
The Patriots fielded Bailey Zappe in the fourth round last month, indicating Stidham’s place in New England was far from secure.
Garrett Gilbert and Nick Mullens are Derek Carr’s current backups with the Raiders. Stidham played for Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels when McDaniels was the Patriots’ offensive coordinator for the past three years.
UPDATE 9:39 AM ET: NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reports Stidham and a seventh-round pick will be treated to the Raiders for a sixth round.
