Brian Lewerke is getting a second chance in New England.
The Patriots on Wednesday re-signed the undrafted rookie quarterback, Lewerke’s father told Graham Couch of the Lansing State Journal.

Lewerke was one of two UDFA QBs the Patriots signed after the 2020 NFL Draft. He and fellow signal-caller J’Mar Smith were among the nine players released Sunday as New England trimmed its roster from 90 players to 80.
Lewerke completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 3,079 yards with 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in his final season at Michigan State. He rejoins Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer in the Patriots’ quarterback room.
