The New England Patriots have reportedly released safety¬†Brandon Meriweather.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed a Pro Football Talk report that the Patriots released the fifth-year pro bowler¬†out of Miami. The Pats reportedly tried to trade Meriweather but were unsuccessful.
Even though I am not a fan of Meriweather, I am surprised the team decided to cut him. I would have been less surprised if they had not released veteran¬†James Sanders on Monday.
With this move, the Patriots went from having safety as their deepest position on the roster a few days ago, to having a very shallow talent pool. In my opinion they will need to bring someone else into the mix. Perhaps veteran Darren Sharper who visited with the team a few weeks ago.
Also, the team has cut Brandon Tate. I will post all roster cuts later today. For Patriots news instantly,¬†follow me on Twitter:¬†@PatriotsHaven!
