Report: South Carolina QB Connor Shaw Works Out For Patriots

The New England Patriots reportedly worked out South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw at Newberry College in South Carolina on Wednesday, according to reports.

Shaw developed a winning reputation during his college career with the Gamecocks, whose membership in the South Eastern Conference — considered by many to be the best in college football — only give his numbers more merit.

The quarterback had a tremendous season in 2013, throwing for 2,447 yards, 24 touchdowns and only one interception. The Patriots are in the market for a new backup quarterback, as Ryan Mallet will be a free agent in 2015.

The Patriots have met with several quarterbacks during the offseason, including Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel and AJ McCarron.
