Curran: Patriots will release veteran WR Nate Washington today

New, comments

The Patriots make another move and let go of a depth wideout.

The biggest news of the day is the New England Patriots releasing former starting center Bryan Stork. However, with roster-cutdown day slowly but steadily approaching, the Patriots are not done making transactions.

According to Tom Curran, the team will also let go off veteran wide receiver Nate Washington.

The Patriots are releasing third-year center Bryan Stork and wide receiver Nate Washington. Stork started as rookie C for '14 SB team.

New England signed Washington to a one-year, $1.065 million free agency contract in March. While he was a productive player in the past, the 32-year old was on the roster bubble due to the Patriots’ depth and talent at the wide receiver position.

It did not help his chances of making the team that he left the first training camp practice due to an illness and quickly fell behind other receiving options like rookie Malcolm Mitchell or veteran Aaron Dobson; both of whom had solid offseasons.

The Patriots now have 81 players on the roster and have until August 30th to trim down to 75 players.
