As training camp without a preseason approaches, a roster of 90 is down to 89 for the New England Patriots.

New England announced the release of cornerback Lenzy Pipkins on Saturday afternoon.

The move was first reported by ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

Pipkins had agreed to terms on a reserve-futures contract in February. The 26-year-old product of Louisiana-Monroe and Oklahoma State originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017.

Across stints with the Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns, Pipkins has appeared in 15 games to record 24 tackles and one pass deflection. He’s seen 175 snaps on defense and 133 snaps on special teams in his regular-season career.

The New England cornerback depth chart stands with Stephon Gilmore, J.C. Jackson, Jason McCourty, Jonathan Jones, Joejuan Williams, Justin Bethel, D’Angelo Ross and rookie Myles Bryant out of Washington.
