Patriots Roster Cuts Landing Elsewhere

The Patriots lost fifth round pick Lee Smith on the waiver wire to the Buffalo Bills.

Today has been a busy day for the NFL, as teams sift through the 800+ players that suddenly became free agents yesterday.  That being said, many of the players that the Patriots let go have landed with other teams, whether it be through the waiver wire or as an unrestricted free agent signing:

Brandon Meriweather, S - Chicago Bears

Will Yeatman, TE - Miami Dolphins

Lee Smith, TE - Buffalo Bills

Brandon Tate, WR - Cincinnati Bengals

Thomas Austin, G - Houston Texans

Landon Cohen, DL - Seattle Seahawks

The fact that the Patriots have already had six of their cuts land on NFL rosters just goes to show you how deep the Patriots are and how respected their depth players are by personnel evaluators around the league.

The big names to find new homes are of course Brandon Meriweather and Brandon Tate.  However, losing both Will Yeatman and Lee Smith to division rivals is also a big blow.  Both of those players were expected to land on the practice squad if they cleared waivers.  Instead, both were claimed and now the Patriots are left with only Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez at tight end (with no other practice bodies).
