Patriots Release WR Doug Gabriel

The New England Patriots released wide receiver Doug Gabriel on Tuesday.

The Patriots traded a draft pick to Oakland on Sept. 2 for Gabriel. After a few weeks of preparation, Gabriel took the field and played an increased role for a few games, but a fumble during New England's loss to the New York Jets was the beginning of the end.

Gabriel never had the impact Patriots coaches expected; and, in fact, never became consistent at all.
