Per @FieldYates, the #Patriots have waived CB Sterling Moore & signed DB Derrick Martin & LB Mike Rivera.


So no more Dowling at CB...no more Moore...now we have McCourty (if we move him back), Arrington, Dennard, and either Martin or Malcolm Williams?

I'm guessing that this means Steve Gregory is expected to be 100 percent after the bye.

Thoughts?

Mild surprise. Moore's pretty bad, but so is everyone else.

McCourty back to corner I assume.

Like it. Moore sucks. Martin can't be worse.

One down, Arrington to go...

Will always have fond memories of the Lee Evans play, but he just wasn't ever going to be a long term solution. Wish him well, but glad we don't have to watch him struggle out there any longer.

Hope he can get it together somewhere I dont hate but I doubt he gets signed for awhile. I dont want Rivera on this roster. Trash player from a trash school.

Moore was terrible, as was the decision to keep him coming out of camp. Offered nothing on special teams and other than 1 memorable play was below average or worse on defense.

Martin played on back to back Super Bowl teams, he Brady, and Branch must be on a pretty short list of active players that can say that.

I still think Kyle is worse than Moore.

Moore still has PS eligibility.

That can't possibly be true?

Isn't PS eligibility removed if a player plays in 5 regular season games??

Nope.

Its pretty complicated. My understanding is that for the first two seasons, you have to be on the roster less than 9 games a season to maintain eligibility. Its been 8 games this year so one more and Moore will no longer be eligible for the PS.

The third year is different though - to be on the PS the third year a player must have been on the roster for less than 6 games in all of his seasons. So Moore wouldn't qualify next season regardless.

Early media-access period in Patriots locker room today on bye week. Sterling Moore locker still intact. Perhaps a return on practice squad

Sterling Moore would have to clear waivers today at 4 pm for Patriots to bring him back on practice squad.
