Wide receiver Aaron Dobson’s time in New England has come to an end.
According to multiple reports, the 2013 second-round pick will be one of the cuts the Patriots make on Saturday to get their roster down to 53 players. The team is also reportedly parting ways with wide receiver DeAndre Carter, leaving Chris Harper and 2016 draft picks Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien in contention for spots at the back end of the receiving corps.
Dobson only played in 24 games over his three seasons with the Pats as injuries were a consistent problem for him in New England. There was a report last week that the Patriots were shopping him in a trade, which was a pretty good sign that he wasn’t long for the roster one way or another.
Multiple reports also have cornerback Cre’von LeBlanc on the cut list. The Patriots only need to make 20 cuts from their 75-man roster on Saturday as quarterback Tom Brady and defensive end Rob Ninkovich will be serving suspensions to start the season.
