The New England Patriots signed quarterback Mike Kafka to a future contract for the 2013 season on Friday.
Kafka, graduated from St. Rita in 2005 and went on to be a standout at Northwestern. From there he was a fourth-round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles where he spent his entire career as the
primary backup to Donvan McNabb, Kevin Kolb
and Michael Vick.
Unfortunately Kafka broke his hand before the start of the 2012 season and did not play.
Kafka joins San Francisco 49er and Notre Dame linebacker, Darius Fleming, as well as Matt Conrath (St. Louis Rams) as St. Rita alumni in the NFL.
