Patriots Release Mike Kafka, Dewayne Cherrington

Chris Trotman

The New England Patriots released a pair of players this afternoon: quarterback Mike Kafka and defensive tackle Dewayne Cherrington.

Yeah, the New England Patriots signed Tim Tebow today. But as it turns out, the team actually made a couple of other roster moves this Monday evening. The team has released two players, quarterback Mike Kafka and rookie free agent defensive tackle Dewayne Cherrington.

Cherrington was signed by the Patriots following the 2013 NFL Draft as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State. At 6'6" and 335 lbs, Cherrington is a big body, but was considered a real long shot to make the Patriots final roster spot.

Kafka was drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles out of Northwestern. He was expected to compete for a roster spot as the third quarterback on the roster. But with the signing of Tim Tebow, he became expendable. So there you have it, your Tim Tebow spin: the Patriots like Tim Tebow more than Mike Kafka.
