Not one team put in a waiver claim for #Patriots former first round pick Dominque Easley

Patriots have released former first round pick Dominique Easley

Patriots former first round pick Dominique Easley went unclaimed via the waivers today

Yesterday, the New England Patriots released defensive tackle Dominique Easley, and today he went without being claimed. Easley, the 2014-first-round pick whom the Patriots waived yesterday, cleared waivers today, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. That makes him an unrestricted free agent.

While many think it is surprising news, I do not think it is a huge story. The reason is Easley was due quite a bit of  money on the back end of his rookie contract.  By him not being claimed teams can bring him in and sign him immediately, but the price will be a lot cheaper. With his past injuries, he may only be given a prove it contract.
