Patriots Release OL RJ Mattes

Former Patriots practice squad player R.J. Mattes has been released, according to the team.

Mattes, 24, had signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State in 2013 before subsequently being cut twice, followed by his signing to the team’s practice squad in December.

The 6-6, 315-pounder was preserved as a possible backup tackle or guard. He never saw the playing field.
