Earlier this week the New England Patriots released a half dozen players. Among those getting cut were WR Jeremy Ebert who was a late round draft pick in 2012.
The Patriots also released RB Tony Fiametta who signed before 2012 as a free agent out of Dallas and never saw the field due to family issues and G Brian Waters who sat out last season debating retirement after having played with the team in 2011 when they went to the Super Bowl.
Among the others cut were TE Brad Herman, DL Tracy Robinson and DB Malcolm Williams.
Only Williams contributed in 2011 playing in two games and making two special teams tackles.
