Mike Reiss predicts Patriots will cut Stevan Ridley

ESPN writer Mike Reiss made his predictions on the New England Patriots 52-man final roster today and he has Stevan Ridley listed as a surprise cut. Here are his thoughts on the possible move.

The Patriots are always good for a surprise, and we’ve had our antenna up at this position since early July. If there’s a surprise, we’ll play a hunch at this spot with Stevan Ridley, whose low snap total Friday (11 snaps) in a “dress rehearsal” game caught the eye. Meanwhile, Roy Finch lands on the practice squad.

The Patriots are known for making some surprise moves like this and the fumbling issues could have him on the waiver wire. If Ridley were to hit the open market, I am sure that some team would jump on the opportunity to bring that potential onto their football team. There are a number of teams that could use a running back of his ability on their roster. Roster cuts will be happening throughout the week, we will see if his name will get caught up in the mix.
