With the roster cuts already beginning there are several players that will be on the bubble heading in to Week 4 of the preseason.
There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Brandon Meriweather will make the final roster. He has earned the reputation of being the kind of player that plays outside the system.
As I mentioned earlier if you aren't playing in the Patriots system than you won't be playing for the Patriots for very long.
Meriweather tends to break off his assignments in hopes to make the big play, but in a system that relies on everyone doing their job it can instantly break up the defensive scheme.
However, with James Sanders getting cut there is some question as to who will play safety for the Patriots if Meriweather is also cut.
Other players on the bubble are wide receivers Julian Edleman and Brandon Tate.
While there has been rumors of Ochocinco being cut, there is little chance. With the contract that he was given after being traded there is zero chance the Patriots don't give him a look in the regular season.
Other hot cut spots include the defensive line and the running backs. The Giants game is their last chance to stand out before Belichick prepares the final cuts.
For many players it could be their last game in a Patriots uniform.
