No surprises so far as Patriots trim roster ahead of Tuesday’s deadline

The Patriots released eleven players on Sunday and two more on Monday. The following players were released:

DL Carl Davis Jr.

LB Diego Fagot

DB Brad Hawkins Jr.

TE Johnny Lumpkin

RB C.J. Marable

DB Quandre Mosely

DB Rodney Randle Jr.

DL Justus Tavai

OL Micah Vanterpool

TE Scotty Washington

LB Carson Wells

P Corliss Waitman

QB Trace McSorely

Other than Carl Davis, there are no surprises on this list. None of these players stood out in training camp or did enough to make the team.

The Patriots could bring some of them back on the practice squad. With the recently expanded practice squad, guys have more of an opportunity to continue their playing careers than previously. 

Teams around the NFL have until Tuesday at 4 pm to get down to their 53 man roster. 

The Patriots still have to cut another 23 players by Tuesday’s deadline.
