ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss suggests that the Patriots might use their second preseason game to showcase Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer for potential trade interest.
Mallett and Hoyer were likely to take the majority of the second preseason game snaps anyway, but this particular game will be nationally televised on ESPN against the Eagles. ESPN Boston is the latest New England outlet to hint that the Pats might be willing to deal Mallett or Hoyer. The Boston Herald has also alluded to it. The Pats' second preseason game will be played in August 20.
