Patriots Cut Roster; O’Connell Traded to Jets

Obviously the big news of the day involved Richard Seymour, but the Patriots have also made some other transactions to cut the roster down to 53 before the season begins. The Patriots made 10 cuts to the roster to get down to 53 and the notable players sent packing are OL Ryan O’Callaghan, OL Wesley Britt and TE Alex Smith. WR Terrence Nunn was also released but has been signed to the practice squad.

Tight end David Thomas, who came into New England with high hopes as a slot guy, was traded to the Saints for a 2011 seventh round pick. LB Shawn Crable – for the second consecutive year – will spend the season on injured reserve.

In other Patriots news, former QB Kevin O’Connell has been trade from Detroit to the NY Jets. O’Connell was cut last week and was claimed by four teams on waivers, including the mean green, but Detroit was awarded his rights because of their 0-16 record. No word on compensation for the second year man out of San Diego State.
