Tight end Rob Myers also been released by the Patriots. Myers had a solid training camp, but became a victim of the numbers game. He was on the Patriots' practice squad last year.
There is also a report from ESPNBoston.com that TE Carson Butler, signed last month, has also been released. Butler was a long-shot to make the roster.
UPDATE (3:15 p.m.) - A league source confirms Butler's release. Both he and Myers are candidates for the practice squad.
