Patriots waive Cassius Marsh

Patriots waive Cassius Marsh

When asked about the decision to waive Marsh, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told reporters, "We felt like it was the best move to make for the football team".

Marsh was acquired by the Patriots from the Seattle Seahawks in early September for a pair of draft picks in the 2018 draft.

The 49ers made their second waiver claim of the week on Wednesday, this time grabbing Cassius Marsh, a defensive end-outside linebacker whom the Patriots let go on Tuesday. He played upward of 50 percent of defensive snaps in four consecutive games before the Patriots' bye, providing depth on the edge in the wake of Dont'a Hightower's season-ending injury. Lynch got outside for a 25-yard gain in the first half. In nine games with the Patriots in 2017, Marsh had 14 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.

Cassius Marsh's brief stint in New England is over. He also blocked a field goal attempt against the Falcons' Matt Bryant in Week 7.

The Patriots filled Marsh's roster spot by signing defensive end Eric Lee off the Buffalo Bills' practice squad, per Yates' source. Lee, a 2016 undrafted free agent, hasn't played in a regular-season game.
