After the flurry of moves today, one of the big questions some followers have is "How many d-linemen can the Patriots keep?"
The cutdown dates are as follows:
Aug. 30 -- Cutdown to 75 players
Sept. 3 -- Cutdown to 53 players
Now including the re-signing of veteran Gerard Warren, here is a re-set of the Patriots' defensive line while factoring in "edge" players as linemen in a 4-3 type look:
Ron Brace (Active/PUP)
Brandon Deaderick (Active/PUP)
