The Patritos cut veteran RB Joseph Addai on the day that veterans were checking into training camp (Adam Caplan).  That was fast! He had lost his burst and couldn’t break any tackles, so it was going to be tough for him to make the roster anyway.

This will open up the door for Stevan Ridley to get more carries. Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead and rookie Brandon Bolden are the other backs on the roster.
