Patriots waive Cassius Marsh

The Patriots traded for defensive end Cassius Marsh before the start of the regular season, but they’ve decided that his time with the team is over with six more games left on the schedule.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Patriots have waived Marsh. They sent 2018 fifth- and seventh-round picks to the Seahawks for Marsh, which is a lot to give up for a player who doesn’t last until December although that move has hardly held the Patriots back this season.

Marsh had 19 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in nine appearances for New England this season. The 2014 fourth-round pick saw action in 37 games for the Seahawks before his move across the country.

Yates adds that the Patriots will fill the roster spot by signing defensive end Eric Lee off of the Bills practice squad.

  1. I’m surprised Marsh lasted this long. He had one move as an edge pass rusher: Try to run around the offensive lineman and get pushed 10 yards behind the QB and completely out of the play.

    He did seem to do that too often, but he also had some value on special teams. I am guessing that Belichick and Co. just decided he was un-coachable in the Pat defensive system.

  3. Patriots need to know more about the Bills playbook? You are joking, right?
    Not only after their last game I doubt that they have one, but if they do and it’s true for every NFL team all you need to do to know about it is to watch their game film and take notes. Get real.

    Yes Chippy, the most successful GM in the history of the NFL is useless at trading right? You forget that unlike your Dohphins, top teams have a huge turnover thanks to Parity Rules and SB players wanting paydays, so nearly 2/3rds of the Pats SB51 roster was new since the SB49 winning team. The Pats, as any team who hopes to be great year after year in the era of Parity, have to be in virtually constant rebuild mode. All of which kind of totally disproves your point, but happy playoffs! Your salt is our joy.

    One of the things that makes Belichick better than all the rest. He doesn’t care wha you think. If a trade doesn’t work he will move on. He’s had his share of bust trades but maybe you should look at his record. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

    It appears that posting nonsense is how some individuals cope with being a fans of a team that hasn’t won anything since 1973. It must also be difficult seeing the patriots having 2 logos that are better than a logo that looks like an advertisement for an aquarium.

  8. No reason for Roger Goodell to continue keeping the PSI information from the 2015 NFL season secret if it supports what the NFL spent so much effort convincing people to believe. It appears that science contradicts the lie that the NFL told everyone.

  9. The ONLY way to guarantee you won’t fail is if you don’t try.

    Belichick has the COURAGE to try and when you try you sometimes fail, but your success percentage and return on successes is higher than losers who stay in their safe-spaces. Think about that the next time you are inclined to say “But TRUMP had 4 business bankruptcies out of the 400 businesses he started and ran” and focus on the courage and success rate related to those 400.

  10. should look at his record.

    • “During games, Walsh later told investigators, the Patriots’ videographers were told to look like media members, to tape over their team logos or turn their sweatshirt inside out, to wear credentials that said Patriots TV or Kraft Productions. The videographers also were provided with excuses for what to tell NFL security if asked what they were doing: Tell them you’re filming the quarterbacks.”

  11. Over 10 years ago a poorly worded memo was misinterpreted, resulting in a camera being a few feet from where the memo said the camera could be. The camera was in that spot for a portion of the 1st quarter of the 1st game of the 2007 NFL season. The author of the memo appointed himself as both judge and jury and the patriots received a costly lesson in human nature when a petty tyrant over punished the Patriots. All because the petty tyrant believed that he was being disrespected when his poorly worded memo wasn’t followed the way he meant to write it.

    Silly trolls who are clearly jealous of The Patriots success have been trying to label it as “cheating” for over 10 years. It’s worth noting that the punishment was intended to punish success. The punishment for the Patriots was dependent upon how the Patriots finished the 2007 season. I don’t recall any other team ever being subject to a penalty that was such an obvious attempt to create league parity. Not until 2015 when the NFL punished a successful team for what the weather does to footballs on cold days.

    I’m not jealous. Just saying that they got caught for cheating.

    That’s it. The facts certainly tell me that.

    “”The Patriots, on the other hand, take almost a defiant stand against the NFL, even when they reluctantly take the punishment.”
    See, this is why the Pats and their fans are so insufferable. They’ll defend the team’s cheating as inconsequential and unfair, and then deny that it happened, sometimes in the same sentence. Their success has taken away all their perspective. It’s not the success that creates the animosity.

    The facts actually tell the opposite. 99.99% of the football viewing world knows that deflategate was a phony, fraudulent, artificially manufactured “controversy” that was disproven not only by complete and total lack of credible evidence, but by science.

    And a Yale professor announced that Physics couldn’t explain the deflation. The only problem is that the professor neglected to obtain the actual PSI data and instead relied on the false PSI numbers that were reported in tabloids and not corrected by the NFL for many months. I suspect that Bill Nye also relied on that false information.

  35. The patriots have had 4 tight ends on the active game day roster for the last 2 games. It seems like they were activate that many TE’s due to players at other positions being out with injuries. The rookie Hollister has been playing on special teams. Maybe he earned a special teams spot and that contributed to Cassius Marsh becoming expendable.

    Lol, ESPN admitted that article was based on falsehoods, apologized, and retracted it. Yet some guy not only made and kept a copy of it, but still lives vicariously through it still pasting from it years later still trying to support himself. The Pats have taken ownership of space in many heads. But some a lot more than others.

    Some of the funniest moments on PFT comments are when fans of other teams are calling this guy an insufferable Pats fan because he wont shut up about them on their team’s articles. They dont even read his comments to notice that he is a hater. They just can’t believe anyone is bringing up the Patriots on such unrelated articles.

  38. The Patriots are on an epic 17 year run of excellence. They have gone to 7 SB games winning 5.

    I guess I’d be a jealous trolling if my team can’t even get to a afc/nfc title game. I think Pats a going for their eighth straight.
