The Patriots got Josh Gordon back into full pads on Sunday, which was only one of two developments involving the team’s wide receiver group.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team released Maurice Harris. Harris signed with the team as a free agent this offseason and joins Dontrelle Inman as recent veterans dispatched from New England.

Harris got hurt in joint practices with the Titans earlier this month, which was bad timing for him with Gordon getting reinstated, Julian Edelman coming off the non-football injury list and Demaryius Thomas being cleared to do more on-field work.

Phillip Dorsett, N'Keal Harry, Jakobi Meyers, Braxton Berrios, Gunner Olszewski and Damoun Patterson remain on the active roster at wideout while Cameron Meredith remains on the PUP list.

  1. Edelman, Dorsett and Harry are locks. Not too sure on Demarius Thomas, so a little concerned there.

    Meyers also appears to be a lock. The kid looks like Charlie Joiner to me.

  2. Just the beginning of many players soon to be cut down…. gonna be a lot of good players hitting waivers…..
    Gotta trust Bill to do what’s best for the team…..
    Still gonna stink to see a bunch of these Gus go…. hopefully some make it back to our practice squad!!!!

  3. BB sure has a lot of swing and misses at WR. He’s definitely losing his touch in his old age

    Yeah no way he was gonna win the SB last season with Hogan & Dorsett as deep “threats”.

  5. Great job NFL. Let’s cut the guys who do everything right to make room for those who can’t follow the rules and have had multiple chances to get it right.

  6. Really good players get chance after chance that’s how it goes in all walks of life. Their is no time too develope guys really in the nfl he is just another guy being cut. Josh Gordon doesn’t deserve another chance but his talent is why he will get one. That dude should kiss everyone’s butt who hasn’t given up on him yet. It’s a shame these guys don’t realize the opportunity’s they have maybe if someone actually lost their chance like they should once they screw up than will people finally see the consequences too their actions

    Kind of like Mark Walton with the Dolphins. Arrested three times in three months during the offseason, including drugs and weapons charges. As an example of how bad his situation is, even the Bengals cut him.
