Patriots waive rookies Sluss, Hines


The Patriots have waived linebacker Ian Sluss and waived/injured running back Quentin Hines.

Both players were signed as undrafted free agents on Friday. Sluss was one of two undrafted free agents whose contracts included no guaranteed money, while Hines received a $1,000 signing bonus.

If Hines goes unclaimed on waivers, he will revert back to injured reserve. The nature of his injury is unknown.

The Patriots' roster is now at 87 players as a result of the moves.
