Patriots announced the release yesterday of 6-2, 255 lb Linebacker Ryan Claridge and 6-5, 295 lb defensive lineman Kader Drame. Also announced yesterday was the physically unable to perform list (What is the PUP List? Players on the list can not practice but can go to team meetings and rehabilitation work, when the player is taken off the list he can immediately return to practice.)
Players on the list include: receiver Bam Childress, cornerback Randall Gay, safety Rodney Harrison, receiver Chad Jackson, offensive lineman Nick Kaczur, center Dan Koppen, fullback/running back Patrick Pass, long snapper Lonie Paxton, and defensive linemen Richard Seymour and Johnathan Sullivan.
If memory serves me correctly, their seems to be a lot more players on the PUP list this year. But many are not expected to be on the list for much longer.
