New England quarterback Josh McDain says he has no intention of changing his offseason plan, which is to work out with his teammates in the coming days before the start of training camp.
The Patriots are in a position where they’re in a spot where they can’t afford to get away from one another and start preparing for the season.
The quarterback, who signed a five-year, $42 million contract in March, said during an interview with The Vertical on Friday that he expects to be able to play during OTAs.
McDaniels said he doesn’t think there will be any change in his offseason plans as the Patriots are “really committed to us.”
“We’ll be ready for camp,” he said.
“I think that’s a good thing, but it’s not going to change the fact that we’re still trying to work through things.”
McDain said he has not received a formal offer from a team yet.
McConnell, who had been widely rumored to be the leading candidate to replace Belichick, has been the subject of speculation throughout the offseason.
McConnaughton, a former backup to Belichick, said on Saturday that he’s not interested in being a backup.
“I haven’t heard from any team,” he told reporters.
“Obviously, if they’re going to be going after me, I would love to play for them.
But it’s all speculation right now.
I don’t know anything about it.”
McConnell also added that he hasn’t heard anything from the Patriots about whether they’d be looking for a veteran quarterback to replace him.
“There are so many different things happening, so there’s no way of knowing what’s going to happen,” he added.
McCollins is one of the most well-respected names in the NFL after being named to the Pro Bowl and being named the MVP of Super Bowl 50.
The former Oklahoma State quarterback said he expects a strong response from the league when he returns.
“You’re going into the offseason, you’re going through a few different things.
I think it’s going get more interesting over time,” he predicted.
“There are going to definitely be a lot of teams interested in me and there’s going be a few teams that are really interested in taking a look at me and seeing if I’m ready to be a backup quarterback and play in the league.”
