The New England Patriots got down to 53 players by cutting 20 players - three of the receivers, Aaron Dobson, Keshawn Martin and Chris Harper.

Dobson is perhaps the biggest name. He was a 2nd round draft pick and played three seasons in Foxboro. He started 13 games but never seemed to life up to expectations.

Here's the full list of cuts as the Pats begin preparations for opening night, September 11th at Arizona.
