    Patriots on verge of adding Lemon

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 1, 2009 4:36 PM ET
    The Patriots have found a new quarterback, one that isn't ever going to take Tom Brady off the field for a play if they can help it.

    ESPN's Tim Graham reports that Cleo Lemon, last with the Jaguars, is on the verge of signing with the Patriots. The deal may be completed Saturday.

    Lemon arrived in New England for a workout Friday, potentially causing overexcited Patriots fans and bloggers to think he was Michael Vick.

    The Patriots were looking for more experience behind Tom Brady, where Kevin O'Connell and Matt Gutierrez have a combined 11 career attempts.

    Lemon started seven games for the Dolphins in 2007, engineering one of the greatest moments of Cam Cameron's head coaching career. (Okay, the only one.)

    The Patriots faced Lemon twice that year, and Bill Belichick must have seen something he liked.

    Look for Lemon to battle Gutierrez for a roster spot.

    I have always been a Lemon fan but if this happens then I will not give him any love. I guess this will be the Pats version of the wildcat.

    ICAM - I still remember him coming in to a preseason game when the Bolts were down by like 21 points or something in the 4th and pulling off a come from behind victory in the final minutes of the game - he's a good back-up :yes: albeit I believe he's a bit on the "short" side as QB's go.... he's got moxie tho and his pass to camarillo saved the dolphins from going 0-16 - gogo Cleo!
