The New England Patriots released tight end Bo Scaife and offensive lineman Mike Ingersoll Monday, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston

Both players weren't Patriots for very long, as Scaife was signed on June 7 while Ingersoll signed on June 8. 

It certainly appears that both players were signed to be extra bodies during the team's minicamp this past week. 

With the pair of roster moves Monday, the Patriots now stand at 88 players on their 90-man roster. I would like to believe that Bill Belichick and the team will be adding two more players to their roster so that they have a full house come training camp. However, training camp is in five weeks, so we shouldn't expect any major transactions from now until then.
