Hull is special teams guy, and it was just a few months ago the Patriots signed him to a one-year deal. He'll look for work elsewhere.

Patriots' claim RB Tyler Gaffney from the Carolina Panthers.

The Patriots are always happy to kick the tires on a new RB, but Gaffney isn't likely to cut the mustard in Bill Belichick's offense. He could impress in camp and find his way onto special teams to start, but one fumble and it's cut city.

Julian Edelman still wants to return punts this year.

Julian Edelman returned 35 punts for 374 yards in 2013. He states that he would like retain that aspect of his game during the 2014 season. While he has been practicing returning punts, it is yet to be seen how extensive his involvement will be this season. Much of the decision will depend on the progress of Danny Amendola and the health of Rob Gronkowski.

Tommy Kelly is practicing on Saturday, so he's been activated from the PUP list.

The Patriots veteran defensive lineman played in just five games in 2013 after going down with a season-ending injury in October. Now that he is back in the mix he makes for a low-end IDP target if he still displays the ability to get to the quarterback like we have seen in year's past.

Patriots released TE Nate Byham, according to today’s NFL personnel notice.

He's a blocking tight end on a team loaded at the position, including one off the best in Rob Gronkowski. He'll look to catch on somewhere else.

Greg Orton was carted off the practice field with a significant leg injury on a non-contact play.

We'll await reports but it seemed like his knee or his ankle gave out on him. Consider him day-to-day, but the outlook is not particularly good.
