On Monday, the New England Patriots made the decision to waive quarterback Matt Corral, according to Doug Kyed of the Boston Herald. However, the team then re-signed him to their practice squad the following day. These recent events mark a busy and somewhat tumultuous period for Corral.
Initially, Corral joined the Patriots after they claimed him off waivers from the Panthers following the final roster cuts. He participated in three practices with the team before ultimately leaving. Due to this departure, the Patriots placed Corral on the exempt/left squad list.
In an attempt to fill the void left by Corral’s departure, the Patriots signed Ian Book to their practice squad last week, making him the No. 3 quarterback behind Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe. However, the team made the surprise decision to waive both Book and Corral on Monday.
Now, Corral has returned to the Patriots as their No. 3 quarterback. It’s worth noting that he missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury. During this year’s preseason, Corral completed 28-of-47 passes for 249 yards, with one interception, while playing for the Panthers.
