Patriots cutting WR Demaryius Thomas

Patriots cutting WR Demaryius Thomas”

The New England Patriots are set to part ways with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Stidham completed 61 of 90 passes in the preseason for 731 yards, with four touchdown passes and one interception. The club carried three quarterbacks in 2011 and in 2016 after drafting quarterbacks Ryan Mallett ('11) and Jacoby Brissett ('16) in the third round. Because he was not on the 53-man roster, he can not be reactivated during the season. He loves football. He's a hard worker.

The Patriots will now have until Sunday, September 1 at 1 p.m.to name a ten-man practice squad. Given his starting experience in Arizona, Cleveland, Houston, Chicago and San Francisco, Hoyer could land on a team needing a veteran backup presence.

The decision was one of the most important for the Patriots to make Saturday in trimming their roster to 53 players, with Stidham gaining momentum late in the preseason as Hoyer didn't play in the team's final two games. The Patriots did not feel comfortable with that number for Thomas, who returned this summer coming off a torn Achilles.

Olszewski, an undrafted free agent out of Bemidji State in Minnesota, became the Cinderella story of the preseason. Thomas joined the Patriots this offseason in free agency, but spent most of his time in New England on the physically-unable-to-perform list due to an Achilles injury in December 2018.

The Patriots also confirmed two other trades, sending defensive back Duke Dawson to Denver and obtaining offensive lineman Russell Bodine from Buffalo. An aging wide receiver isn't exactly something to get excited about.
