Quinn recently joined Fox Sports as an analyst. The former Notre Dame signal caller admitted to working out with an NFL squad during an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show.” He didn’t initially reveal what team it was, but it later come to be known that it was indeed the Patriots.
It’s unclear as to why the Patriots hosted Quinn, considering they already have Ryan Mallet and Jimmy Garoppolo backing up Tom Brady on the depth chart.
Quinn has bounced around the league since being drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2007. He’s spent time with New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and most recently the St. Louis Rams last season.
Big things were expected of Quinn coming out of Notre Dame where he set 36 school records in four seasons out in South Bend, Indiana. Quinn’s career got off to a rocky start and things never panned out as he had hoped.
Quinn tossed 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 24 career games at the NFL level.
He’s now set to make appearances on Fox Sports 1. He’ll also serve as a football analyst for the network.
The 29-year-old never reached his full potential and his visit with New England seems to be nothing more than the team being a bit curious as to what he has left to offer.
