The New England Patriots worked out free-agent quarterback Brady Quinn on Monday, according to a league source.

Quinn, who was hired Thursday by Fox Sports to be an analyst, said during an appearance on "The Dan Patrick Show" on Friday that he worked out with a team this week, though he did not reveal which one it was.

As it turns out, it was the Patriots, whose offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, has experience with Quinn during their time together in Denver in 2010.

The Patriots' quarterback depth chart behind Tom Brady includes Ryan Mallett and rookie second-round pick Jimmy Garoppolo.

It's unclear if the team remains in the market for a quarterback or if this was a case of due diligence.

Quinn last saw action during the 2012 season with the Kansas City Chiefs, going 112-for-197 for 1,141 yards and two TDs in 10 games. He also had eight interceptions.

Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
