Patriots Release FB Huggins

Yesterday, the New England Patriots signed free agent fullback Kareem Huggins to fill the void on the roster left by Tony Fiammetta, who will be out for the season due to personal issues with an expected return in 2013.

Today, not even 24 hours after he was signed, the team has announced the release of Huggins, who spent his first two years in the league with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Huggins didn't even practice once for the Patriots, as per new CBA rules, he was required to wait three days to practice with the team. No reason has been reported yet on why Huggins was released, although perhaps it had something to do with his knee injury that caused him to miss the entire 2011 season.

The move leaves the Patriots with 89 players on their roster, one short of the camp maximum 90. At fullback, the team still has Spencer Larsen and Eric Kettani in the fold. Neither are locks to make the 53 man roster.
