Pats cut Bethel-Thompson again, roster back to 2 QBs


It's been a busy 10 days for Patriots third-string quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson.

Signed by the team Sept. 1, the 26-year-old lasted all of two days before he was released, only to be brought back a day later prior to the team's first regular season game. 

Two days after the team's loss to the Miami Dolphins, however, Bethel-Thompson was once again given his walking papers, replaced on the practice squad by defensive end Cameron Henderson, according to the team's website. The move leaves New England in a familiar position, with only Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo the only signal-callers on the roster.

Cameron, released by the Browns in late August, started his career with the Atlanta Falcons last season. At 270 pounds out of Central Florida, the 24-year-old brings more youth to a defensive line crew anchored by veterans Vince Wilfork and Rob Ninkovich.

The team also brought in seven other players for tryouts Tuesday. For breakdown of the participants via Mike Reiss and Field Yates of ESPN.com, click here.
