Colbert, 27, signed in May and had played 86 snaps on defense to go with 19 snaps on special teams during New England’s preseason, intercepting one pass.
He thanked the organization on Twitter following his departure.
What an honor it was to be apart of the @Patriots! God brought me here to GROW! Not only as a player on the field (lots of that happened), but off the field as well. In my faith, in my relationships, and as a teammate. I owe some credit to everyone in the building for that. pic.twitter.com/nhfr1aekaV— ADRIAN COLBERT (@AdrianColbert27) August 30, 2021
The former Texas Longhorn and Miami Hurricane entered the NFL in the seventh round of the 2017 draft. He has also been a member of the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs and New York Giants since then.
Through 33 career games and 19 starts, Colbert stands with 93 tackles, eight pass deflections, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
The likes of Devin McCourty, Kyle Dugger, Adrian Phillips and Cody Davis also reside on New England’s safety depth chart as the calendar turns to September.
The NFL roster deadline is set for 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
