BOSTON (CBS) — Tuesday is the day for the Patriots and every other NFL team to trim their roster to 53 players. The moves must be made 4 p.m. ET.

The team has gone through a couple of rounds of cutdowns before, but Tuesday’s will be the most significant, as the roster goes from 80 to 53, setting the official roster for Week 1 of the season.

We’ll have all of the updates right here throughout the day. The complete list of released players will be at the bottom of the story.

3:20 p.m.: PFF’s Doug Kyed says that Gunner Olszewski, J.J. Taylor and Harvey Langi will make the 53-man roster, as of now.

Obviously things are fluid around this time of year, but I'm hearing that WR Gunner Olszewski, RB J.J. Taylor and LB Harvey Langi are safe on the Patriots' initial 53-man roster.

… and rookie Cameron McGrone is likely to start the season the non-injury list.

Not a major surprise, but it sounds like Patriots rookie LB Cameron McGrone, a 2021 fifth-round pick who tore his ACL in November, will begin the season on the non-football injury list. McGrone could start practicing after six weeks.

Giants roster cuts: Tracking the path to 53 players

Giants Wire 31 August, 2021 - 02:30pm

The Giants will cut their roster to 53 players before 4 p.m. on Tuesday, but that won’t necessarily be their final 53. Before Week 1, the Giants will likely still make more moves.

They can (and likely will) clear roster spots by putting players on injured reserve after the initial cuts. Rookie outside linebacker Elerson Smith and wide receiver John Ross are real candidates for that. Then, depending on their injury severity, other possibilities for injured reserve would include tight end Evan Engram and defensive tackle Danny Shelton.
