Nate Byham was signed by the Patriots only a few days ago. Well that date was a short one. The Patriots released him today.
The club released Byham on Friday, five days after adding the ex-Buccaneers tight end to their roster.
The move leaves the Patriots with one open roster spot. They have five tight ends: Rob Gronkowski, Michael Hoomanawanui, Justin Jones, Asa Watson and D.J. Williams.
