Patriots waived RB Tyler Gaffney.
A preseason star with top-shelf Combine measurables, Gaffney became expendable with the signing of Rex Burkhead. Burkhead, Dion Lewis, James White, and D.J. Foster are the four tailbacks left on New England's roster. Mar 20 - 5:12 PM

ESPN Boston believes UDFA RB D.J. Foster and Tyler Gaffney are vying for the same roster spot.

Gaffney had been working toward sewing up a spot, but it's become clear he hasn't. A running back who converted to receiver his senior season at Arizona State, Foster returned to the backfield for the Patriots. He's been limited to five touches this preseason, but should get major run in Thursday's finale. Foster's pass-catching prowess works in his favor as the Pats wait on Dion Lewis to return.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe believes Brandon Bolden is "in danger" of losing his roster spot to Tyler Gaffney.

Previous reports had Gaffney pushing LeGarrette Blount, which never made much sense. Gaffney overtaking Bolden is more feasible. Gaffney has been the better performer this preseason with 95 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, though Bolden has always been valued on special teams. The Pats may keep both players if Dion Lewis (ACL) begins the year on reserve/PUP as some are predicting.
