Patriots Writer Lists Five Potential (And Surprise) Cuts Entering Season


July 17, 2020

The New England Patriots have more cap space now than they did just two weeks ago, benefitting from grievance settlements with Antonio Brown and Aaron Hernandez.

However, a few potential cuts could help save the Patriots even more money, especially at positions where there could be a healthy competition to begin with.

Boston Sports Journal’s Greg Bedard, who covers the Patriots, listed five different players Friday “who could be in danger of losing their roster spots.” Those players include offensive guard offensive tackle Korey Cunningham ($750,000), defensive lineman Deatrich Wise ($1.9 million), offensive guard Jermaine Eluemunor ($2.13 million), offensive tackle Marcus Cannon ($4.49 million) and Mohamed Sanu ($6.5 million).

Of course, some of those names — Cannon, Sanu — are more recognizable to the common fan, but perhaps head coach Bill Belichick will try to find a way to do it without a key contributor from past years.

The Patriots are scheduled to begin training camp on July 28.
