The New England Patriots trimmed three players from their training camp roster.
The New England Patriots fell to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night in their second NFL preseason game. As the team works to whittle its roster to 53, several changes were made to the Pats' depth chart on Tuesday, according to a report appearing in TheLedger.com.
The most notable of which is defensive tackle Jonathan Fanene being cut by New England. In March, the Patriots agreed to a three-year deal with Fanene that was worth close to $12 million when they signed him as a free-agent.
He had been listed as second on the depth chart behind Vince Wilfork.
Free-agent rookie Kyle Hill also was cut from the Patriots. The offensive lineman was listed as second on the depth chart at left tackle behind Nate Solder and was fourth on the right tackle depth chart behind Sebastian Vollmer, Marcus Cannon and Matt Kopa.
Place kicker Chris Koepplin was also released by the Patriots.
