Patriots | Team has not made contact with Fiedler

John Tomase, of the Boston Herald, reports the New England Patriots may pursue a veteran backup quarterback, but one free agent they have yet to contact is QB Jay Fiedler (Jets). Fiedler dislocated his shoulder last season and is still recovering from surgery. He recently began throwing 25-30 yards. He has spoken to the New York Giants and two other teams about backup jobs, but has not heard from the Pats. "I've known Scott Pioli a long time," Fiedler's agent, Brian Levy, said. "If New England is interested, they'll get in touch. It wouldn't be a problem." Levy said Fiedler has long admired Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick. Feidler has resigned himself to being a No. 2 quarterback, according to Levy. Should the Patriots call, Levy believes Fiedler would be a good fit.
