Patriots cut Braxston Cave, Matthew Mulligan

The Patriots have released offensive lineman Braxston Cave and tight end Matthew Mulligan. Cave had been claimed off waivers Sunday after being released by Cleveland. He was a third-team All-American at Notre Dame.

Mulligan, a Bangor, Maine, native who played at the University of Maine and has spent four years in the NFL (three with the Jets, last season with St. Louis), was signed as a free agent Tuesday. He has 20 starts among his 50 NFL appearances, catching 14 passes for 144 yards and one touchdown.
