Patriots Release Speedy Receiver, Returner Reggie Dunn After Minicamp

Reggie DunnFOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots opened up a spot on their 90-man roster after minicamp concluded Thursday afternoon.

The Patriots released speedy wide receiver/kick returner Reggie Dunn, the team announced. Dunn had been working as a kick and punt returner during organized team activities and minicamp. He was the fastest player on the Patriots roster, running a 4.22-second 40-yard dash at his Utah pro day last March.

Dunn’s release reopens speculation that the team could sign a veteran free-agent tight end with Dustin Keller and Jermichael Finley still available.

The Patriots have the next month off until training camp begins in late July.
