Patriots wide receiver Brandon Gibson just posted this on his Twitter account. It sounds like Gibson is the third wide receiver released in the last 24 hours. The team released Brian Tyms, Brandon Lafell and now Gibson. The team also released tight end Scott Chandler yesterday.
Gibson was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft and has also played for the St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins. He played college football and basketball at Washington State.
On March 10, 2015, the New England Patriots signed Gibson to a one-year, $825,000 contract. Gibson was placed on injured reserve on August 24, 2015.
Thankful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best to ever do it. I’m appreciative of the time spent
