DB Williams released by Patriots

The Patriots have announced that rookie DB Malcolm Williams has been released.

A seventh-round pick out of TCU, Williams was promoted off the practice squad Saturday before the team’s game against the Redskins.

If Williams clears waivers he could be brought back to the practice squad, though currently all spots on that team are full.

A corresponding move for the 53-man roster has not yet been announced.
