According to the New England Patriots website and ESPN.com, Duane Starks has been cut by the Patriots.
I for one am not sad to see Starks leave, but his shoulder injury may have contributed to his poor play and it saves money against the cap.
I am concerned, however with the idea that McGinest may be cut. According to Len Pasquarelli at ESPN.com, McGinest may be cut next week:
Not sure I buy this argument as Willie has made a ton of money, is winding down a brilliant career and has always renegotiated his contract to save the team some money. He is a great player, but is 36 years old and probably would not break the bank signing a contract with another team. I would be surprised if he doesn't restructure to stay with the Patriots.
