As cuts roll in before today’s 4 p.m. EST deadline for teams to decrease their roster size to 53 players, the Patriots have cut Cam Newton.
Newton, 32, had been expected to be named the starter after starting last season and throughout training camp, including Sunday’s preseason finale against the Giants.
“I really appreciate all the love and support during this time,” Newton wrote on Instagram following his release. “But I must say… Please don’t feel sorry for me. #imGOOD.”
