Predicting cuts to 75-man limit

8/26/2012

By 4 p.m. EST on Monday afternoon, all NFL teams will be required to shave their active roster down to 75 players, 15 fewer than they are currently allowed to carry. That means an overload of players will soon find themselves without a job, while others will be one step closer to finding a spot on an NFL roster.

The Patriots currently stand at 85 players, meaning 10 more will have to go by Monday. With that in mind, here are our predictions of which 10 players might be on the move:

Predicted cuts

Safety Will Allen

Safety Sergio Brown

Defensive lineman Tim Bulman

Offensive lineman Derek Dennis

Wide receiver Jesse Holley

Defensive end Aaron Lavarias

Defensive back Derrick Martin

Offensive lineman Dustin Waldron

Predicted moves to reserve lists

Tight end Jake Ballard (reserve/PUP)

Offensive lineman Markus Zusevics (reserve/NFI)
