BOSTON (CBS) – The Patriots lost four recently released players to waiver claims on Sunday, including wide receiver Braxton Berrios, who was claimed by the New York Jets.
Former Patriots assistant Brian Flores claimed two New England players. Now the Dolphins head coach, Flores put in claims on cornerback Ken Webster and defensive end Trent Harris.
The Denver Broncos claimed Andrew Beck, who played fullback and tight end during the preseason with the Patriots.
When it comes to Berrios, Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston speculated that the Jets may have grabbed Berrios to prevent the Patriots from stashing him on the team’s practice squad.
Berrios being claimed by Jets is fascinating. Didn’t play in preseason game No. 3. Didn’t play much in the finale. Almost a Corey Bojorquez situation. Punter didn’t see any time in preseason last year. Still claimed by Bills. Wonder if Jets assumed NE was trying to hide Berrios.

As for the Patriots, Joel Erickson of the Indy Star reported they claimed sixth-round defensive end Gerri Green. He has agreed to join New England’s practice squad.
