Recapping all the Patriots' roster moves from the weekend
You really miss a lot when you go away for a couple days, especially on a holiday weekend.
The Patriots made a slew of roster moves over the holiday weekend in preparation for the season opener on Thursday. They trimmed the roster down to 53 players and made a few trades to bolster the special teams unit. Here is everything from the weekend aside from the Jacoby Brissett trade.
1. Brandon Bolden was cut, but re-signed a day later. He will be on the 53-man roster heading into Thursday night. 2. To open a spot for Bolden, the Patriots placed Shea McClellin on IR. They can bring McClellin back if he's healthy enough to play. 3. New England made a few moves with the Seattle Seahawks - cornerback Justin Coleman was traded for 2018 seventh round draft pick. In a separate move, the Pats sent a fifth and seventh rounder to the Seahawks for defensive end Cassius Marsh. 4. Angelo Blackson, a former Tennessee Titan, was signed to the practice squad. The Pats also released Woodrow Hamilton and Corey Vereen. 5. The team traded a 2019 sixth round pick for Detroit Lions cornerback John Bademosi.
