Tracking Patriots Roster Cuts: Wide Receiver Isaiah Zuber Gets Cut – CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) — Tuesday is the day for the Patriots and every other NFL team to trim their roster to 53 players. The moves must be made 4 p.m. ET.

The team has gone through a couple of rounds of cutdowns before, but Tuesday’s will be the most significant, as the roster goes from 80 to 53, setting the official roster for Week 1 of the season.

We’ll have all of the updates right here throughout the day. The complete list of released players will be at the bottom of the story.

12:15 p.m.: OK, the Cam Newton news was rather big. It kind of derailed the process here. In that time, the Patriots released two defensive linemen: Akeem Spence and Montravius Adams.

10:15 a.m.: Well. There’s your big one. Cam Newton has been released.

9:43 a.m.: Isaiah Zuber, who caught Mac Jones’ first touchdown pass of the summer on Sunday, has been released.

9:38 a.m.: Defensive back Myles Bryant has been cut.

9:31 a.m.: Add lineman Alex Redmond to the list.

9:23 a.m.: Tight end Matt LaCosse, who suffered an injury in joint practices with the Eagles, has been cut.

9:17 a.m.: Cornerback D’Angelo Ross, who had an end zone interception and a big third-down tackle vs. the Giants on Sunday, has been released.

9 a.m.: Defensive back Dee Virgin and wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson have been released.

Tuesday, 8:50 a.m.: The team released Adrian Colbert and waived Bill Murray and Tre Nixon on Monday, before waiving William Sherman — a sixth-round draft pick this year — on Tuesday.
