Cut down day is here and the Patriots are always good for a surprise of two on days like these. Even with the Logan Mankins bombshell earlier in the week, there will still be roster moves made that aren’t expected. Stay tuned to this thread all weekend as the Patriots adjust their roster to the league mandated 53 players, put together a 10 man practice squad, and acquire players that other teams let go. These next few days are always action-packed and we have you covered with all the pertinent information.

After all the projecting and prognosticating the Patriots cut their roster down to the league mandate of 53. Actually the Patriots took it a step further and cut the roster to 51. As is always the case there were a few surprises and this year an unprecedented number of rookies on the roster.

Here is how the Patriots roster breaks down and what could be in store over the weekend as the Patriots try to finalize their team.

During the 2011 pre-draft process, the New England Patriots revealed a surprising amount of interest in the University of South Florida. Head coach Bill Belichick attended the Bulls’ pro day, and later in the week New England invited two USF prospects, defensive tackle Terrell McClain and defensive back Mistral Raymond, to participate in private workouts.

The Patriots didn’t end up drafting either player – McClain was selected with the 65th overall pick by the Carolina Panthers, Raymond with the 170th overall pick by Minnesota – but this week the Patriots (temporarily?) parted ways with rookie defensive tackle Marcus Forston in order to sign McClain, who had been released after just one season with the Panthers.
