With the Patriots first training camp practice beginning in just a few minutes, I thought I’d take a look at a couple of roster moves the Patriots made over the last couple of days.
To start, the Patriots released two players; cornerback Jamar Love and offensive lineman Jermail Porter. They finalized a four year contract with 2nd round pick Patrick Chung, as well as sixth round pick Jake Ingram.
The Pats also worked out one player, outside linebacker Stryker Sulak. Sulak was a sixth round pick in this years draft, but was unexpectedly released by the Raiders last week. At 6-5, 265 pounds, Sulak is an ideal fit as a pass rushing outside linebacker, although playing defensive tackle mostly throughout college, he could be solid in run support as well.
The Patriots also placed five players on the active/PUP list. The players placed on the physically include Ty Warren, Shawn Crable, Rich Ohrnberger, Darryl Richard, and Mark LeVoir. Rookie wide receiver Brandon Tate was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list.
That pretty much wraps everything up. The Pats’ first practice is beginning as I write this, so tune in tonight with my thoughts on what I saw today.
