Quarterback Mike Kafka, who failed to make the Eagles' roster, worked out for the Patriots on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. The Patriots cut Brian Hoyer, who was the third quarterback behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. The Eagles attempted to trade Kafka, but ultimately waived him and he went unclaimed. Kafka was the odd man out to back up Michael Vick after rookie Nick Foles and veteran Trent Edwards played well in the preseason. "There was great competition at the QB position," coach Andy Reid said. "That's what football and training camp is all about. In the end, we had to make the difficult decision to let Mike Kafka go."
