The New England Patriots launched 24 players to get their roster to the 53-man limitation by Saturday’s deadline. While there is an aspect of finality to this day, it has a bit more fluidity this year since of the modifications to a couple of guidelines in the face of a season currently impacted by the global pandemic.

There are some visible absences and gamers who discovered themselves on the outside looking in despite having strong training school. Cassh Maluia, Devin Ross, and Nick Folk are in that number.

Others, such as Jeff Thomas, and rookie kicker Justin Rohrwasser had obvious talent, but injuries and/or underwhelming performances led them to the cut line.

The kicker position is undoubtedly tentative. As of now, the Patriots do not have a kicker on the lineup. Presuming Rohrwasser clears waivers, he appears like an excellent candidate to arrive on the group’s practice squad. Nick Folk might be re-signed, or the Patriots could want to sign another free-agent kicker.

There is lots of time to get this exercised considering groups frequently bring in kickers a day or 2 before they play a significant role in the middle of a regular season. Aside from that, it’s quite clear what the team will look like initially. Watch for the practice squad announcements next week.
