The Patriots had to make two final cuts on the Tuesday deadline to get the roster to 75. Tim Tebow survives for now.
FOXBORO – All eyes have been on
this preseason and whether he'll make the 53-man roster.
There is still doubt whether Tebow will be on the roster on opening day, but he was able to survive the cuts to the 75-man roster.
Two other players were not so lucky. The Patriots announced the release of tight end
and defensive lineman
Anthony Rashad White
to meet the NFL-mandatory 75-man roster limit.
Landi, 23, was signed by the Patriots on August 13. He was signed by Tampa Bay as a rookie free agent out of South Florida on April 29, 2013, but was released on June 4, 2013.
The 6-foot-3, 236-pound Landi played in 46 games at South Florida with 26 starts and finished his career with 72 receptions for 846 yards and three touchdowns.
White, 24, was signed by the Patriots on July 22. Prior to signing in New England, he was signed by Pittsburgh as a rookie free agent out of Michigan State in April but was released by the Steelers on May 14.
White (Kevin Saleeba / Patriots Insider)
The 6-foot-2, 330-pound White was a three-year letter winner as a nose tackle, seeing action in 39 games with 16 starts and accumulating 65 total tackles.
White began his college career at Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College in 2009 before transferring to Michigan State for the 2010 season. White was a starter for his final two seasons.
