Sammy Morris among Patriots cuts


Sammy Morris found a second life in New England four years ago at age 30, but it appears his run with the Patriots is over.

Morris’ agent said on Twitter Saturday that the veteran running back was let go. That would appear to indicate that rookies Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen are healthy and ready to start the season.

News of Patriots cuts have slowly leaked out all day. The most surprising name so far has been defensive end Eric Moore, who opened camp with the starting unit.

Other Patriots leg go, per the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and DE Markell Carter, DE Aaron Lavarias, WR Tiquan Underwood, DE Alex Silvestro, DL Landon Cohen, special teamer Niko Koutouvides, RB Eric Kettani, and DL Landon Cohen.
