Even when he was a fantasy monster, Culpepper was an inaccurate quarterback who could run and throw bombs. Now he can’t run, and Cassel can probably throw bombs, too (and knows the Pats' playbook, knows Pats' opponents, knows Pats' players, knows Pats' coaches, etc).
I thinks it’s unlikely the Pats bring anyone in at QB. They have three on the roster (Matt Cassel, Matt Gutierrez, and Kevin O’Connell) that the Pats drafted in the last four years.
Belichik has always shown a willingness to play young or inexperienced guys he thinks are good players, even firing more experienced guys in the process. (Brady over Bledsoe, Eugene Wilson over Lawyer Milloy, Stephen Gostowski over Adam Vinitieri).
