Patriots | Not actively shopping Ryan Mallett

The New England Patriots are not actively shopping backup QB Ryan Mallett, according to a source. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, all players drafted after 2011 or later cannot restructure their contract until they complete their third season. So that's a snag, as any team that acquires Mallett can't sign him to an extension until next year, which could take away from some of his value.
