Patriots Release Tiquan Underwood

The New England Patriots have made their first of many cuts at the wide receiver position. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Patriots have released wide receiver Tiquan Underwood. Underwood's agent has since confirmed the move.

This is a blow for Underwood, who became infamous in February for being released the day before the Super Bowl. Nonetheless, it is a move that's not exactly surprising considering the depth that the Patriots have at the receiver position. Since the end of the 2011 season, the Patriots have added the likes of Brandon Lloyd, Donte Stallworth, Jabar Gaffney, and Donte Stallworth to the roster via free agency. The also placed the franchise tender on Wes Welker, restructured Chad Ochocinco's contract, and re-signed veteran Deion Branch and special teams ace Matthew Slater.

Underwood didn't really produce much when he saw the field last year for New England, and considering the depth of veteran talent, was a very long shot to make the roster in 2012. By cutting him now, Underwood will receive the opportunity to catch on with some other wide receiver needy team.
