Now that the latest cuts come down, here’s a look at the current Patriots active roster. With 51 players, the team does have room to make two more additions. (And it’s worth adding once again that in the past, plenty of moves have been made between the final cuts and opening day. Bottom line? Expect a fluid situation between now and Sept. 8 when the Patriots meet the Bills.)
