Patriots Release Marcus Pollard

The Patriots have released veteran tight end Marcus Pollard, possibly signaling the team may keep just two tight ends on the roster.

Pollard is best known for his time with the Colts, but has failed to impress in training camp and two preseason games for the Pats.

The move leaves Ben Watson and David Thomas as the only tight ends on the roster.

UPDATE: The Patriots have signed rookie tight end Tyson DeVree. This is DeVree’s second go-round with the Patriots since going undrafted in April.

My Take: I don’t remember hearing his name called at all so far in the preseason. I thought he could fit in nicely as a third TE but with so many runningbacks and fullbacks, Bill Belichick may go against his norm and keep just two TEs on the roster.

  1. Think you could have your Pats cut Moss, Brady, Seymour and Vrabel?

    Many thanks,

  2. Yea I don’t think they’d do that. Just a hunch.
