Where's the Beef? (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)
According to Jeff Howe:
The Patriots have already informed some players of their fate. Expect the news of cuts to start coming soon
So here's an open thread to keep track off all the movement throughout the day. There are a lot of players that must be released so it will be interesting to see which players stick on the roster. Will Brandon Tate and Matthew Slater both make the team? Which defensive linemen will be cut? Who will remain on the offensive line? Will the team take three or four tight ends? There are many questions and there will be answers on the way.
