The Patriots announce earlier this evening that they would be signing rookie DE Anthony Alex Silvestro from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Since the Patriots already had a full roster of 53 men, Silvestro's addition required a corresponding subtraction. The Patriot way.

Exit: Tiquan Underwood. Underwood is perhaps best known for his attempt to bring back the hi-top fade but he can now add a football-related claim to fame—released the night before the biggest game of his life by the worst dressed man in the history of football.

Update (7:45 p.m.) As commenter TheShortMan notes, Underwood was involved on the play that precipitated Tom Brady's bitchfest with Patriots' assistant coach and newly-hired Penn State head coach, Bill O'Brien.
