The New England Patriots have made another trio of transactions on their way to getting their roster under the regular season limit of 53. One of the moves, as first reported by the Providence Journal's Mark Daniels was releasing a training camp standout:

After going unselected in April, the Patriots quickly brought Moore on board as a free agent. Of all the undrafted additions the team has made, the Valdosta State product was the most promising – a competitive option at the position with a knack for the football. As such, he finished the preseason with nine tackles and one pass deflection.
He was still facing an uphill battle to make the roster, though. And today's acquisition of Johnson Bademosi did certainly not help him. However, Moore's days in New England might still not be over as he appears to be a priority practice squad addition.
The Patriots have also made the following two moves:

Both Travis, who led the Patriots with 19 preseason tackles and also added a forced fumble and recovery, and Douglas were part of deep positions and on the roster bubble even before training camp started. Just like Moore, both players are still eligible for the practice squad.
