Patriots release Silvestro

The Patriots have released rookie DL Alex Silvestro.

The Rutgers product, an undrafted free agent, was promoted off the practice squad before the Patriots played Miami last Saturday. He played a dozen snaps in the game.

If Silvestro clears waivers, he’s a candidate to return to the practice squad.

There is no word on who will fill the now-open spot on the roster.
