David Parry’s preseason push with the New England Patriots ended Friday.

According to The Athletic’s Nick Underhill, New England has released the 27-year-old defensive tackle, who started and recorded two tackles Thursday night against the New York Giants.

Parry, who had a sack negated by offset penalties, saw a total of 66 defensive snaps in the finale.

Parry originally entered the league as a fifth-round pick in the 2015 draft. The Stanford product started all 32 games for the Indianapolis Colts through his first two regular seasons, accruing 78 tackles and four sacks over that span.

The nose tackle later spent time with the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings before signing a reserve-futures contract with New England in January.

Listed at 6-foot-2 and 315 pounds, Parry had checked in to every exhibition this August for the Patriots.

On the depth chart ahead of Parry reside Lawrence Guy, Danny Shelton, Adam Butler and rookie fifth-rounder Byron Cowart out of Maryland as the calendar turns to September.
