The Patriots made a minor roster move, cutting OT Tom Welch, a former seventh-round pick who has served as a third-tight end on some plays. He also allowed a brutal sack yesterday, but it’s not clear if that’s related.
Welch could return to the practice squad, but this opens up a spot on the 53-man roster. Perhaps this is a good sign for OT Sebastian Vollmer, who has nursed a back injury. He was walking around today, so maybe he’s better.
