If two players are to be remembered from the final few minutes of last season's AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens, it's Sterling Moore and Billy Cundiff. Moore for knocking the ball out of Lee Evan's hands, and Cundiff for missing the field goal that would've tied up the game. In New England Wednesday, we saw one come in for a visit, and one...
A day after dumping 22 players from the roster to get down to 53, the Patriots continued making moves today, signing seven players to the practice squad and trading for St. Louis Rams wide receiver Greg Salas.

Patriots defensive end Alex Silvestro made his NFL debut last Sunday, filling in on the line after spending most of the season on the practice squad. He said it took him a while to get acclimated, but “after I got one game down. I feel a lot better now.”
He won’t get the chance to make it right Sunday, as the Patriots released Silvestro. He will likely land back on the practice...
