Patriots cut Donald Brown, E.J. Biggers and a few others

Donald Brown (

The Patriots trimmed down their roster to 83 players today, as the team cut ties with running back Donald Brown, defensive end Frank Kearse, cornerback E.J. Biggers, tight end Bear Pascoe, safety Cedric Thompson and defensive back V'Angelo Bentley.

Brown, Kearse and Biggers were all signed to one-year deals during the offseason. Given the situation at running back, Brown is the most surprising cut of the six made today.
