FOXBOROUGH Jakob Silfverberg Jersey , Mass. (AP) — New England waived Kenny Britt on Wednesday, ending the wide receiver’s underwhelming stay with the Patriots.
Despite losing Danny Amendola in free agency and knowing Julian Edelman will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season, the Patriots let go of the 29-year-old Britt, who was with his fourth team. New England also had released Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell from its receiving corps.
Britt caught two passes in three games for New England after joining it last December. He did not dress for any of the postseason games, including the team’s 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
The 30th overall draft pick in 2009 hurt his hamstring in June during minicamp and barely was a presence in training camp for New England this summer.
Britt’s inability to stay on the field this offseason limited his training time with 41-year-old quarterback Tom Brady during camp.
“It’s just different stages at different times whether it’s Kenny or other players,” Brady said Wednesday prior to Britt’s release. “You have set-backs with injuries and so forth and you don’t get the work but when you are out there you just try to get up to speed as best you can Claude Giroux Jersey , so spending extra time when you’re available, I think that’s important.”
Brady said his scheduled permitted him from working with Britt during the offseason.
Britt spent the first five of his nine pro seasons with the Titans, then played with the Rams for three years, and both the Browns and Patriots last season.
The former Rutgers standout has eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards in a season once in his career, totaling 1 Chris Wideman Jersey ,002 with the Rams in 2016.
New England has 10 receivers remaining on its active following Britt’s departure, two of them are newly-acquired veterans Cordarrelle Patterson and Eric Decker.
Former Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi has divulged that he lost most of his left hand in an all-terrain vehicle crash last April.
Massaquoi, who starred at Georgia before he was drafted by Cleveland in the second round in 2009, revealed his prosthetic and details of his misfortune in a video posted Monday on The Players Tribune.
Massaquoi was riding ATVs with friends when he said he took a turn too sharply and crashed. The 31-year-old said it felt as if an explosion had gone off in his hand, and he was initially unaware of the severity of his injury.
"What I'm seeing and what my friends are seeing are completely different," he said Kyle Okposo Jersey , giving the first public description of his life-changing ordeal. "They're seeing what actually happened. I'm seeing what I think happened. I'm thinking that I just broke my hand. My friend, on the other hand, thinks my hand just went through a meat grinder or something like that. Meanwhile you can see the panic and the fear in everybody."
Massaquoi said he was flown by helicopter to a hospital, where doctors initially tried to save his hand. However, after it didn't heal as hoped, four fingers were amputated. His thumb was spared.
He has battled denial and fear during his recovery.
"It gives you a perspective of how precious life is http://www.officialoilers.com/authentic-adidas-connor-mcdavid-jersey ," he said. "How fast things can change. You go from joy-riding to getting in a helicopter to find out that your hand's going to be amputated."
Massaquoi, who spent four years with the Browns and has been out of football since, credited his family and friends for helping him come to terms with the injury.
