The New England Patriots are back to their regular ways of shuffling the bottom of their roster.

On Wednesday, the Patriots re-signed linebacker Mike Rivera, who had been with the team in September, and also brought back defensive back Derrick Moore, who had been in camp with New England.

The Patriots released defensive back Sterling Moore and also dropped tight end Alex Silvestro from their practice squad.
