Full back Tony Fiammetta, tight end Brad Herman, defensive lineman Tracy Robertson were also let go by the Patriots. “Fiammetta, 26, was signed by New England as a free agent on March 20, 2012 but spent the entire 2012 season on the Exempt/Reserve List. The 6-foot, 250-pounder, is a veteran of three NFL seasons with Carolina (2009-10) and Dallas (2011). He originally entered the NFL as a fourth-round draft pick (128th overall) by Carolina in 2009 out of Syracuse.
