The Patriots have signed Tom Brady to a new deal, but that doesn't mean he is the only Patriots quarterback in the news.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, an NFL source expects the Cleveland Browns to try to make a trade for backup quarterback Ryan Mallett.

For what it's worth, another NFL source said Bill Belichick doesn't want to part with the former third-round pick.

Earlier in the offseason, the Patriots would want at least a second-round pick for Mallett.

Mallett has played in four games in two seasons for the Patriots.  In those appearances, the 24-year-old completed one pass in four attempts with one interception.
