The Patriots reportedly cut defensive end Rashod Berry, tight end David Wells and receiver Marvin Hall ahead of Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline to get down to 85 players.

They also moved on from veteran offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins,

The Patriots signed Hawkins on July 30.

Hawkins entered the league as a fourth-round choice of the Steelers in 2017. He started one of the five games he played as a rookie. Hawkins spent 2018 on injured reserve, played one game with Tampa after a 2019 trade and then returned to Pittsburgh last year.

Hawkins appeared in 13 games in 2020.
