Patriots 2024 free agent tracker: Live updates, news on veteran players

It's going to be a busy couple of months for the Patriots as they rebuild their roster.

The New England Patriots might be one of the busiest teams in the NFL offseason.

Not only do the Patriots have the No. 3 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft -- their highest selection since 1993 -- they also have the third-most salary cap space of any team (around $74.5 million, per Patriots cap expert Miguel Benzan) and 15 veteran players able to become free agents.

That group includes some pretty important players, including safety Kyle Dugger, edge rusher Josh Uche and offensive tackle Mike Onwenu.

There are several key dates for fans to keep an eye on.

Teams can begin putting the franchise tag on players beginning Feb. 20. The franchise tag deadline is March 5. The legal tampering period of free agency begins March 11, and the free agent market officially opens March 13.

Keep it right here for the latest updates and news involving the Patriots' own free agents and veterans who are released.

Monday, Feb. 19: The Patriots' available cap space has increased by $5.17 million as a result of Monday's moves, per Miguel Benzan.

Offensive tackle Trent Brown's contract will void Monday without an extension, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Brown will become a free agent.

The Patriots also released Lawrence Guy. The defensive lineman was a key contributor for the last seven years and won a Super Bowl in 2018.

Safety Adrian Phillips was released Monday, too. His playing time decreased in 2023. Both the Phillips and Guy news were first reported by Tom Pelissero.
