The Patriots, as always, seemed to have the most interesting cuts on Saturday.
We’ve been updating the news all day in our cut-down tracker, but in case you missed it Brandon Meriweather, Brandon Tate, Sammy Morris, and Eric Moore were among the Patriots already let go.
The team announced the rest of the moves Saturday night.
Three players were placed on the reserve/PUP list: RB Kevin Faulk, DT Ron Brace, and DL Brandon Deaderick. None of those moves come as a surprise.
OL Rich Ohrnberger was placed on injured reserve.
The rest of the cuts: DL Landon Cohen, LB Niko Koutouvides, WR Tiquan Underwood, OL Thomas Austin, RB Eric Kettani, DB Ross Ventrone, LB Markell Carter, DL Aaron Lavarias, DE Alex Silvestro, TE Lee Smith and TE Will Yeatman.
Smith and Yeatman were fighting for the No. 3 tight end spot. Don’t be surprised if the Patriots pick up a veteran there.
