Patriots Make A Move To Cut 2022 Draft Pick

The New England Patriots will look different in the 2024 NFL season. They have a new head coach and a different coaching staff. The Patriots adjusted their roster and it was more than obvious that Mayo wanted to make a change. He respects Bill Belichick’s legacy and the effort he has made over the years. However, Mayo wanted to build his own team and there was no place for players who don’t fit in the new scheme. According to recent reports, the Patriots decided to cut a 2022 NFL Draft pick.

Offensive lineman Andrew Stueber is no longer part of the team. The Patriots waived the seventh round pick from Michigan. They will enter the new season without the former Wolverines lineman.

Multiple sources confirmed the release and ESPN’s Mike Reiss has the full report.

“The Patriots have informed OL Andrew Stueber of their plans to waive him. Stueber, of Darien, Conn., was a seventh-round pick in 2022 out of Michigan. He was vying for a backup spot on the line this year,” Reiss reported.

Patriots cut the pick and enter a new chapter

Stueber missed the 2022 NFL season due to a torn hamstring. The Patriots had him on the practice unit in 2023. Stueber probably expected a chance to get a spot on the roster, but it won’t happen.

The Patriots will enter the new season with a game against the Bengals on September 8. NFL analysts have high expectations from the team and Mayo is an optimist. Let’s see if the new-look team makes an impact. They missed the chance to make the playoffs in the last few seasons and Kraft was visibly frustrated. New England parted ways with Belichick after two decades. Seeing the Patriots play without the legendary coach at the sideline won’t be easy.
