This is as expected after New England waived the rookie yesterday.
Despite being the first kicker selected in this past April’s draft, Rohrwasser struggled during camp and lost the starting job to veteran K Nick Folk.
Jeff Howe reports that the team is also expected to add folk to the practice squad as well.
Rohrwasser, 23, was drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round out of Marshall this past April. He signed a four-year deal worth a projected $3.6 million.
In two years at Marshall, Rohrwasser made 33-42 field goal attempts (78.6 percent) and 79-82 extra points attempts.
Folk, 35, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2007. He spent over two years in Dallas before he signed on with the Jets in 2010 as a free agent.
Folk was entering the final year of his four-year, $12 million contract that included $2.1 million guaranteed when the Jets released him. After a short stint with the Buccaneers, Folk joined the Patriots last year and was on and off of their roster.
The Patriots re-signed Folk a few weeks ago.
In 2019, Folk appeared in seven games for the Patriots and converted 14-of-17 field goal attempts (82.4 percent) to go along with all 12 extra-point tries.
