It's that time of year when NFL teams must inform the unlucky that they've cut them from the final 53 man roster. So far today, Mike Reiss's blog has listed the following:
- TE Alex Smith - Looks like Benjamin Watson and Chris Baker, and traded with Giants for Michael Mitchell at TE.
- TE David Thomas - traded to the Saints for a 2011 draft pick.
- DB Jamar Love
- LB Paris Lenon - Possibly beat out by LB Eric Alexander for a spot.
- WR/S Ray Ventrone - Ray has found a spot since 2005. Not today, unfortunately.
- WR Terrence Nunn - The Patriots appear stacked at WR and Terrence is last on the depth chart. However, he did do some good things this past Thursday against the Giants.
- DL Darryl Richard - 7th round choice, the Patriots are pretty deep at defensive line.
Nothing's official until 6pm tonight, boys and girls. Some of the above could come back on the practice squad, but would have to clear waivers (not picked up by another team).
