Patriots Cut Ron Brace, add 3 to roster

Patriots Cut Ron Brace, add 3 to roster 



via Patriots

"The New England Patriots activated DL Jermaine Cunningham to the 53-man roster and signed WR Kamar Aiken and DB Malcolm Williams to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. In addition, the team released DL Ron Brace."

The move to release Brace, who appeared in just 10 games this season, is an indication that he had no future after this season.

The former BC product's tenure has been a disappointment since he was selected in the second round (40th overall) in the 2009 NFL Draft.

This one was an easy one to call. I hated the pick and am surprised he lasted this long. He was a product of playing in a bad league and benefited by teams doubling and tripling BJ Raji.

Good to see Cunningham back.

Kind of a shame about Brace, who's a ******** from Springfield. When he was healthy he was explosive, but that didn't happen often enough.

Well they tried him as a 3-4 NT, then as a 3-4 DE, and finally as a 4-3 DT and he couldn't get it done at any of them.  He's going to be a free agent anyway so with Cunningham back it's probably as good a time as any to let him go.  Too bad.


Just for kicks I went back and checked picks 35 -45 from that draft (Brace was picked 40) just to see what else the Pats might have been able to get with that pick.  And it was mostly a bunch of guys just like Brace, who either never play or are already out of the league.  Must have been a weak draft that year.
