FOXBORO, Mass. - Former Grand Junction High quarterback, Andrew Walter, has joined the New England Patriots. Walter was waived by the Raiders last Thursday.
The 6-foot-6, 230-pound Walter had spent the last four seasons with Oakland after being selected by the Raiders in the third round of the 2005 draft out of Arizona State. He has played in 15 games, starting nine, and completed 174 of 333 passes for 1,919 yards and three touchdowns.
Walter will back up New England All-Pro Tom Brady who is returning after a season-ending knee injury during the first game of last season. The Broncos host the Patriots on October 11.
