FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tuesday is roster cutdown day across the NFL, where teams have to trim their roster to 53 players by the 4 p.m. deadline.
These days usually come with a few surprises, and things are no different in Foxborough.
Zappe appeared in 2 games during the 2022 season, going 2-0 and throwing 5 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. However, his play diminished this past preseason, throwing for only 1 touchdown in 3 games.
Cunningham went undrafted but signed with the Patriots back in April after a lengthy college career at Louisville. Cunningham was a bright spark in the preseason, lining up at both wide receiver and quarterback.
The cuts come as a surprise to many, as this leaves Mac Jones as the only quarterback on the roster, with no reports of corresponding quarterback moves in New England.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates as more information becomes available.
