Alex Silvestro Released by the Patriots

By Matt Sugam

Alex Silvestro has gone from defensive end, to tight end, to the waiver wire.

The Patriots waived the Rutgers product after moving him to tight end during training camp. Silvestro was flipped to the offensive side of the ball for the first time since high school when the Patriots tight ends were riddled with injuries.

Now, Silvestro sits on the waiver wire where he can be picked up by another team. If he’s not, it’s likely he’ll find a home on the Patriots practice squad given his versatility.
