    90 total players (number takes into account Claridge and Drame release)

    -1 unsigned rookie (Maroney)

    =89

    -8 NFLE Exemptions (Mortensen, Charles, Steitz, Z. Smith, Henry, Musinski, Ventrone, Spann)

    =81

    -1 NFLE Bonus Exemption (Chad Jackson)

    =80


    Active/Preseason PUP players still count against the limit.

    There are 10 of them as we know:

    There are also 4 players on the NFL Europe/Exempt Injury list, but we may or may not see them on the field tomorrow:

    Musinski returned to minicamp practice the next day.

    Since they have NFLE exemptions anyway, it really doesn't matter if they're on the NFLE injured list or not. Cedric James spent upwards of two years on the list with the Patriots before he was cut in March.


    The Patriots don't have any players on the Injured Reserve or Non-Football Injury list yet. They also don't have any players on the regular season/inactive PUP, as it wouldn't make sense at this point.

    From Miguel's site:

    Ourlads.com, a scouting agency with sources within the league, lists Chad Jackson as having one of those "bonus" exemptions:

    I'll have to check on which Patriot NFLE allocation met the ambiguous criteria. There's really nothing on the internet available on it, though.

    Their site is completely free (including the daily-updated depth charts). They do sell some draft guides, though.
