The New England Patriots cleared a roster spot Friday by waiving wide receiver Will Hastings.

Hastings, who was signed as an undrafted free agent in April, was a slot target for Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham at Auburn. The 24-year-old had also been cut by New England in July before being re-signed the following day.

NFL teams have until 4 p.m. on Sept. 5 to trim their rosters to no more than 53 players.
