The New England Patriots are always trying to keep their team on the highest possible level, while having sufficient depth at every position. That's the reason why the Patriots will never stop building every facet of the team, be it the active 53-man roster or the 10-man practice squad.
Therefore, it does not come as a surprise to see the team make two practice squad transactions yesterday. Via patriots.com, New England has re-signed wide recevier DeAndre Carter and have released offensive lineman Torrian Wilson. The team's press release has to say the following about the two players:
Carter, 22, originally signed with the Baltimore Ravens as a rookie free agent out of Sacramento State on May 8, 2015. The 5-foot-8, 188-pounder, was released by the Ravens on Aug. 31, and joined the Oakland Raiders practice squad on Sept. 16. He was released by the Raiders practice squad on Dec. 1 and signed by New England to the practice squad on Dec. 15, 2015.
Wilson, 24, entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Detroit Lions on May 7, 2015, out of Central Florida. The 6-foot-2, 318-pounder, was released by Detroit on Sept. 5, 2015 and signed to the Patriots practice squad on Nov. 10. He played in 49 games during his college career, primarily at left tackle.
