Patriots Waive OT Kevin Hughes and DT Vince Taylor

Just because New England does not practice does not mean that the team is not working.

Four days of the New England Patriots' 2015 training camp are over and we have already seen quite a few changes to the team's roster. Today, another one took place according to the NFL transaction wire (via Shalise Manza Young):

The 26-year old Hughes was originally signed by the Patriots in May. The offensive tackle went undrafted out of Southeastern Louisiana in 2011 and spent time with the St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers before signing in Foxboro. He left Saturday's training camp session with an apparent injury and did not return, prompting the team to claim former Atlanta Falcons offensive tackle Harland Gunn.

Taylor was also signed by the Patriots in May, after the defensive tackle went undrafted out of Vanderbilt. The 23-year old was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list (PUP) prior to the start of training camp after failing his physical.

Both Hughes and Taylor were longshots to make the team. With the moves, the Patriots now have 86 players on their roster and four open spots.
