Belichick in no rush to sign new QB

September 10, 2008


— New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick says he's in no rush to sign a new quarterback.

Belichick spoke Tuesday, one day after losing MVP Tom Brady for the season due to a knee injury.

The coach said quarterbacks Tim Rattay and Chris Simms were in Foxborough on Monday, but they didn't work out or take physicals.

"I didn't even see them when they were here," Belichick said Tuesday.

It appears the team will go into Sunday's game against the New York Jets with two quarterbacks - veteran backup Matt Cassel and rookie Kevin O'Connell. Cassel replaced Brady in New England's 17-10 win over Kansas City,

And Belichick says the team hasn't decided on whether to add another quarterback.
