Patriots waive 2020 third-round pick Dalton Keene

Chris Simms isn't "overly concerned" about New England's secondary since it's a "position of incredible depth," and he wasn't expecting Malcolm Butler to be a difference maker, though recognizes the loss of J.C. Jackson.

The second round of Patriots cuts will include tight end Dalton Keene.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Patriots have waived Keene. He was a 2020 third-round pick in New England, but injuries kept him from making much of an impact on the field.

Keene appeared in six games as a rookie as a knee injury led to a stint on injured reserve. He missed all of last season with another knee injury. His Patriots run ends with three catches for 16 yards.

Fellow 2020 third-rounder Devin Asiasi, Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Matt Sokol, and Jalyn Wydermyer are the other tight ends on the Patriots roster.
