Patriots Free Up Another Roster Spot By Releasing Receiver Bernard Reedy

The New England Patriots released the most obscure player on their Super Bowl LII 53-man roster.

The Patriots cut wide receiver/returner Bernard Reedy on Wednesday, the team announced.

Reedy appeared in two games with the Patriots in 2017. He returned four punts for 32 yards.

The Patriots originally signed Reedy to their practice squad Nov. 22. They then promoted him to the active roster Dec. 2. He was waived Dec. 13, signed to the practice squad and was released again Jan. 3 before being re-signed to the active roster Jan. 17.

The Patriots waived defensive end Caleb Kidder on Tuesday. He cleared waivers, becoming a free agent, Wednesday. They also released tight end Martellus Bennett.

The Patriots have 60 players on their roster and 15 free agents.

They have Kenny Britt, Brandin Cooks, Phillip Dorsett, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, Cody Hollister and Riley McCarron on their wide receiver depth chart.
