Roster cuts aren't easy, just ask Bill Belichick who had that job at one time.
"That was my first job when I was with the [Indianapolis] Colts," Belichick said this week. "That was one of my first jobs."
Belichick felt that players didn't take it personally, but they knew when they saw him it was bad news.
"I think everyone knew at that time that I wasnt the one making the decision. I wasnt really the one telling them but when they saw me it was bad news. They knew that. They knew if I was in the area that didnt boat well for them. If I wasnt in the area then the coast was clear."
For the Patriots the Turk has 22 slips to hand out. Four of those slips were given yesterday when the team released DL Steve Fifita, DB Jeff Shoate, OL Jimmy Martin and TE Jonathan Stupar.
The other 18 will come today, including player moves to season-ending reserve/injured.
Patriots Insiders provide this list based upon what was seen in games, practice and during training camp.
