Koppen, Branch, Hoyer among Patriots cuts

The New England Patriots have some big names among their final cuts, including long-time center Dan Koppen, who re-signed with the club in the off-season after missing most of 2011 with a broken ankle.

Various reports also had the Patriots letting go of veteran wide receiver Deion Branch and cutting second-string quarterback Brian Hoyer, which leaves only Ryan Mallett behind Tom Brady.
