Rohrwasser was waived by the Patriots on Tuesday. The Patriots will stick with Nick Folk in the 2021 season, so Rohrwasser -- their 2020 fifth-round pick -- will leave the team before he made his NFL debut. Rohrwasser was quite good in his senior year at Marshall, connecting on 18 of 21 field-goal attempts (86 percent).
The Patriots signed Rohrwasser to a reserve/future contract Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Nick Folk ended up taking over and dominating for the Patriots this year, so Rohrwasser -- a rookie fifth-round pick out of Marshall -- never moved up from the practice squad. Robert Aguayo also signed a reserve/future deal with the Patriots on Monday. Rohrwasser and Aguayo may be the main contestants for the starting kicker role in 2021 if Folk -- a 37-year-old pending free agent -- doesn't return.
The Patriots signed Rohrwasser and Nick Folk to the practice squad Sunday, Andrew Callahan of The Springfield Republican reports. Rohrwasser and Folk were both cut Saturday after having spent training camp competing for the starting kicker gig. Now with both back with New England on the practice squad, it's likely that if one is able to impress more over the next week, he'll be activated for Sept. 13's season opener against Miami. Of course, the Patriots could always opt to bring in another kicker before Week 1.
Both Rohrwasser and Nick Folk have been let go by the Patriots, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports. Initial reports relayed that Rohrwasser was in line to be waived, which appeared to result in Folk landing the team's kicking job. However, subsequent reports revealed the Patriots' plans to trim both players off the team's initial roster. Rohrwasser is thus a practice squad candidate, while New England may either bring Folk back at some point or add a new kicker, with quite a few currently available following NFL cut-downs.
Rohrwasser will be waived by the Patriots, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. With that, Nick Folk heads into Week 1 as the team's kicker, while Rohrwasser -- who was the first kicker selected in the 2020 NFL Draft -- could land on the team's practice squad, with Cox relaying that coach Bill Belichick suggested Friday that the Patriots remain interested in continuing to work with the fifth-rounder.
