Patriots lose four players to waivers
The Patriots may have their 53-man roster set, but the rest of the league couldn’t grab enough of their cuts, as New England lost a total of four players to waivers on Sunday.
Brian Flores and the Dolphins were especially interested in what the Patriots made available, as they claimed defensive end Trent Harris and defensive back Ken Webster from the Patriots.
The 23-year-old Harris had three tackles in New England’s 22-17 win over the Titans in the second game of the preseason, but did not appear in the third or fourth game of the summer. Webster, meanwhile, was drafted by the Patriots in the seventh round this year, and finished the preseason with 10 tackles and a pass defended in three games.
Denver then nabbed fullback/tight end Andrew Beck from the Pats.
An undrafted free agent out of Texas, Beck had two carries for seven yards and one nine-yard catch in three preseason appearances. His lone action in Thursday’s preseason finale came with a four-yard rush.
And the Jets, of course, claimed wideout Braxton Berrios.
The Patriots, for what it’s worth (and as expected), did not make any claims off the league’s waiver wire on Sunday.
