This comes after The Boston Globe reported that the team has parted ways with Gerard Warren, Josh Barrett and Ross Ventrone.
Many, including yours truly, thought that Stallworth might make the team thanks to the great respect the organization had for his professionalism and veteran skills. But apparently that was not enough to overcome a pretty poor training camp and the overall competition, both at wide receiver and for roster spots in general.
With the above five moves, the Patriots have five more transactions to make by the 4 p.m. deadline for teams to be down to 75 players. It's possible, and likely, that a few moves to reach that limit would involve placing Myron Pryor (shoulder) and Jake Ballard (knee) on PUP and rookie Markus Zusevics (pectoral) on NFI.

UPDATE: Our friend Aaron Wilson @Ravensinsider reported that fullback Spencer Larsen was also released. That would leave four more moves remaining in order for the Patriots to reach the 75-man limit.
