The Giants have claimed Rourke off waivers from the Patriots, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

After being waived by the Patriots on Monday, Rourke was quickly scooped up by the Giants. The 25-year-old is thus slated to add depth to a New York QB corps that also includes Daniel Jones, who is bouncing back from a torn ACL, as well as Drew Lock and Tommy DeVito.

Being let go by Patriots

The Patriots plan to waive Rourke, Mike Reiss of reports.

Given that the Patriots took two quarterbacks (Drake Maye and Joe Milton) in last month's NFL draft and also roster Jacoby Brissett and Bailey Zappe, it's not surprising that the team elected to part ways with Rourke. The 25-year-old has yet to appear in an NFL regular season game, but Rourke did draw 11 starts over two campaigns (2021 and 2022) with the CFL's BC Lions.

Set to re-sign with New England

Rourke is slated to re-sign with the Patriots, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The Patriots claimed Rourke off waivers from the Jaguars back in December, and the 25-year-old will remain with the team in 2024 to provide quarterback depth. At this stage, however, it remains to be seen who Rourke will be working behind this coming season, with Mac Jones' future with New England to be determined and the franchise potentially adding a signal caller in April's NFL draft.

The Patriots claimed Rourke off of waivers from the Jaguars on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Just a couple days after being waived by Jacksonville, Rourke has already found another opportunity in New England. He still hasn't made his regular-season NFL debut, but with the Patriots eliminated from playoff contention and looking for answers at the quarterback position, it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see him check in before season's end.

Waived Saturday

Rourke was waived by the Jaguars on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Rourke signed to Jacksonville's active roster prior to the Week 14 matchup with the Browns in order to serve as an emergency option under center behind Trevor Lawrence (ankle) and C.J. Beathard. Assuming he clears waivers, the signal caller will presumably land back with the team's practice squad.

Emergency third QB

Rourke has been designated the Jaguars' emergency third quarterback Sunday against the Browns.

Rourke was added to the team's roster to provide insurance in case Trevor Lawrence (ankle) was unavailable. However, Lawrence is active and starting, while C.J. Beathard will serve as the team's No. 2 QB on Sunday.

Promoted to active roster

The Jaguars elevated Rourke to the active roster Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The move comes with Trevor Lawrence (ankle) being a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Browns. If Lawrence is unable to suit up, Rourke will serve as the backup QB behind C.J. Beathard.

Back with Jacksonville

The Jaguars signed Rourke to their practice squad Tuesday.

Rourke was elevated to Jacksonville's active roster to be the team's emergency quarterback for Thursday night's contest, but he was waived the following Saturday. The 25-year-old has since cleared waivers, and he's now back with the Jaguars' practice squad.

Dropped by Jacksonville

Rourke was waived by the Jaguars on Saturday, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Rourke was elevated from Jacksonville's practice squad to the active roster ahead of Thursday night's game against the Saints, and he served as the team's emergency quarterback. The Ohio product has since been waived and could very well end up on the Jaguars' practice squad if he clears waivers.
