The New England Patriots made quarterback moves Monday as they announced the signing of veteran Andrew Walter and the release of three-year backup Matt Gutierrez.

Walter spent the last four seasons in Oakland after joining the Raiders as a third round pick out of Arizona State in 2005. Walter, who was waived by Oakland on July 30, has started nine of 15 games and completed 174 of 333 passes for 1,919 yards and three touchdowns in his career. In 2006 alone, he played in 12 games and completed 147 of 276 passes for 1,677 yards and three touchdowns.

Gutierrez joined the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Idaho State in 2007 and made the team as the third quarterback. He played in five games as a rookie, completing one pass for 15 yards at Miami.
