The New England Patriots have made their roster cuts to get down to the league-mandated 80-man roster limit. The team had until Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. (ET) to get down to the roster limit and they made quite a few moves on Monday to do that.
We already noted the release of S James Sanders but they also released the following players: CB Jonathan Wilhite, LS Matt Katula, FB Garrett Mills, DL Kade Weston, K Chris Koepplin, DB Malcolm Williams, WR Tyree Barnes, FB Eric Kettani, and WR Darnell Jenkins.
They also signed a couple of players: WR Tiquan Underwood and S Ross Ventrone.
The next step for the Patriots is preparing for the big cut down on Sept. 3. On that date, teams will need to go from 80 to 53 players. Not only will they need to find out which players on the team they'll release, they also need to be watching the rest of the league to see who gets cut so this will be a busy time for the New England front office.
