For the second consecutive offseason, running back Tyler Gaffney was released by the New England Patriots.
Gaffney, who was drafted in 2014 and then spent two seasons on injured reserve, has yet to appear in a regular season NFL game. He carried the ball 35 times for 152 yards with one touchdown in preseason action last summer.
The Patriots have Dion Lewis, James White, Rex Burkhead and D.J. Foster at running back. LeGarrette Blount and Brandon Bolden still are available as unrestricted free agents.
