Boston columnist: Has New England found Tom Brady’s heir apparent? Ex-LSU QB Danny Etling will get his shot

Columnist Karen Guregian asks that question in a Sunday piece for the Boston Herald. Her answer: Kinda. Maybe. Technically, yes, for now.

“We knew we were going to add a quarterback to our team at some point,” Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio said following the draft. “You just evaluate the player, and look, we think Danny has some decent traits and some decent qualities to work with. We’ll put him in our program and see how he does.”
