The Patriots are getting a little time off after Thursday night’s win over the Colts. Defensive back Cyrus Jones will be getting a little more.

The Patriots have waived Jones again.

Originally a second-round pick in the 2016 draft, the Patriots waived Jones on September 1. He later signed with the Ravens’ practice squad. On September 19, the Patriots re-signed Jones to New England’s active roster.

He appeared in the Week Three loss to the Lions and the Week Four win over the Dolphins. Jones didn’t play against the Colts on Thursday night.

Jones served at times as a return specialist during his first stint with the Patriots, but he fumbled five times. He returned five punts during his second stint with the team, averaging nine yards per return.

The Patriots made no corresponding roster move, which means that they have 52 players on the roster, for now.

    Yup. Definite roster need for a running back.

  3. I thought a team that signed a player from another teams practice squad had to keep that player on active roster the rest of season. Can someone please enlighten me?

    No, the team picking up another teams practice squad player only has to keep him on the roster for 1 week HOWEVER the player is still guaranteed 3 weeks active roster pay from the team that claims him( so teams USUALLY keep him for at least that long)…….
    Once he is released he then has to go thru waivers where any team can put a claim in with the team with worst record getting priority over other teams…. if he clears waivers he becomes free agent & can sign with any team

  5. “Josh Gordon and a 3rd round pick for Bell?”

    You’re nuts. Not only would the Steelers not help the Pats out, but I’d much rather the highly motivated Gordon we’ve seen so far than a poorly motivated, sullen Bell that knows very well the Pats will never pay him what he wants long term.
