Patriots Release Simmons, Re-Sign Cornerback Johnson

It has been a pretty slow news day for the Patriots, although the team did make a couple of minor roster moves.

The Patriots released offensive lineman Brian Simmons and re-signed cornerback Terrence Johnson, an undrafted rookie free agent.  Simmons was signed a couple of weeks ago after going undrafted, and after playing sparingly against the Falcons, didn't see any time against the Rams following the acquisition of Quinn Ojinaka.

Terrence Johnson's re-signing may be an indication of the severity of the injury suffered by Terrence Wheatley in last Thursday's game against the Rams.  Johnson should see a good amount of playing time against the Giants in the preseason finale on Thursday.
