Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald confirms that former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Mike Teel has been claimed off waivers by the New England Patriots.
For the second time in his career Teel has put Jeff Rowe out of work, as the Nevada product was released by the Patriots today to make room for the Rutgers product. Rowe competed with Teel for the third string quarterback job in Seattle last season. Rowe finished last season on New England's practice squad.
Teel will compete for the backup QB job in New England behind Tom Brady with Brian Hoyer and rookie Zac Robinson.
