The New England Patriots are down to 75 players.

They cut six players and placed running back Tyler Gaffney and linebacker Cameron Gordon on injured reserve.

The Patriots also cut defensive lineman Ben Bass, defensive back Travis Hawkins, wide receiver Derrick Johnson, linebacker Deontae Skinner, defensive back Jemea Thomas and wide receiver Wilson Van Hooser.

The Patriots also traded six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for tight end Tim Wright and a fourth-round draft pick.
