Patriots finalize roster

The Patriots have announced their cuts prior to the regular season opener next Sunday against the Jets. For a full list of the cuts, check out Reiss’s Pieces.

Some notable cuts include the ageless Vinny Testaverde, who lost out as the third string quarterback to rookie Matt Gutierrez, who showed too much quality to cut before the season.

Also looking for a new home is tight end Marcellus Rivers. Rivers was brought in before the first pre-season game because of the injury to Kyle Brady and had played well in all four games, catching eight balls for 83 yards and a touchdown while filling in as a blocking tight end.

With roster exceptions for Asante Samuel (for only a few more days) and Rodney Harrison (for the first four weeks) the Pats could have technically kept 55 players, but decided to keep only 53. Thus, theoretically there are only 51 players on the active roster, though Samuel is expected to play against the Jets.
