Patriots release Eric Moore

The Patriots have just announced that defensive end Eric Moore has been released.

For the second time this season, it is a bit of a surprise to see him go: with Andre Carter placed on IR today, Moore figured to be one of the players who’d get a chance to help fill the void left by Carter’s absence.

New England now has two open spots on the 53-man roster.
