ESPN’s Tim Graham reports that the Pats are on the verge of adding QB Cleo Lemon to the mix to be a possible backup to Tom Brady:

The New England Patriots clearly aren’t satisfied with their quarterback depth behind Tom Brady.

An NFL source tells me the Patriots are on the verge of signing journeyman Cleo Lemon to be Brady’s top backup. Lemon tried out for them Friday afternoon in Foxborough, Mass. The signing is expected as early as Saturday.

Bill Belichick must crave additional experience at quarterback. New England’s depth chart includes Kevin O’Connell (third-round pick last year), Matt Gutierrez (undrafted third-year pro) and Brian Hoyer (undrafted rookie).

O’Connell has six NFL attempts. Gutierrez has five.
