The Patriots reportedly cut defensive end Rashod Berry, tight end David Wells and receiver Marvin Hall ahead of Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline to get down to 85 players.

They also moved on from veteran offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

The Patriots signed Hawkins on July 30.

Hawkins entered the league as a fourth-round choice of the Steelers in 2017. He started one of the five games he played as a rookie. Hawkins spent 2018 on injured reserve, played one game with Tampa after a 2019 trade and then returned to Pittsburgh last year.

Hawkins appeared in 13 games in 2020.

  1. Hawkins may get 2nd-string someplace. Tough to make Pats as PFF ranks their o-line as top-3.

    Let the stidham decade of dominance begin now!
    That may be a tad bit difficult at this stage as he’s on IR after a surgery…next year when Cam is gone & Jones is running the offense I have no doubt Stidham will be the Pats only back up & ready to step in should, GOD forbid, Jones gets hurt…. So, you’ll have to wait & dream about that for another year…..
