i love that the Pats are afraid of the Eagles and Giants and have planned accordingly, but to the point of this thread, some tough decisions, which is good, but still tough

i believe the 28th. thats 80. then the cuts to 53 is the day after the last preseason game IIRCI thought the same thing. I have read conflicting articles regarding dates and roster size. Through ESPN, it says rosters are cut down to 80 players on Aug 28th then final cuts to 53 on Aug 31st. The I have found another article that mentions rosters are cut to 75 by Aug 28th and 53 by Sept 2nd? I also ready in 2 other articles that first cuts need to be done by 4pm EST on the 27th of Aug?

Before the new CBA, I know teams carried 80 into camp and 1st cuts dropped you to 75 on the roster, then you cut the last 22 on final cuts after the final preseason game.
