The New England Patriots released six-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman Brian Waters yesterday, according to Brian McIntyre of Yahoo! Sports. According the NFL's personnel notice, #Patriots terminated the contract of Brian Waters from the "Reserve/Did Not Report" list today — Brian McIntyre (@brian_mcintyre) April 30, 2013 Waters signed with the Patriots prior to the 2011 season, and he was successful that season for the club. However, he wound up not reporting with the team in 2012, as he was seeking an increased contract. This raise never came, and neither did Waters. The 36-year-old sat out the entire 2012 season, and New England simply placed him on the reserve/did not report list. He’s now been released by the club, and is free to sign elsewhere. There is some thought that he’d like to join a team that plays close to his home in Texas. Prior to signing with the Patriots, Waters was a successful guard for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was with KC from 2000 until 2010. He’ll now attempt to see what else is out there for him in the way of contract offers, but there is speculation that he’s played his last NFL game.  Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
