Patriots Trim Roster to 53

In a flurry of moves Saturday, the Patriots have made it under the league limit of 53 players on roster – releasing ten and trading one.

David Thomas has been traded to the Saints for a 7th Round draft pick in 2011. With the release of TE Alex Smith, this leaves three TE’s: Chris Baker, Ben Watson and Michael Matthews – acquired from the Giants for a future draft choice.

Shawn Crable, Chris Taylor, and George Bussey have been placed on injured reserve.

The Patriots released the following players:

OT Ryan O’Callaghan
DL Titus Adams
OL Wesley Britt
CB Herana-Daze Jones
LB Paris Lenon
CB Jamar Love
WR Terrence Nunn
DL Darryl Richard
TE Alex Smith
DB/WR Ray Ventrone

O’Callaghan should land with a team, presumably the Kansas City Chiefs. Nunn and Richards look like prime candidates for the Patriots practice squad.
