Gonzalez released by Patriots

The SportsXchange

Wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez was released by the Patriots.

New England has a bevvy of options at the position, including the team's top three holdovers from the 2011 roster -- Wes Welker, Deion Branch and Chad Ochocinco -- and veterans Brandon Lloyd and Jabar Gaffney, who signed as free agents.

Gonzalez signed March 17 after injuries contributed to him sliding out of the Colts' plans. In five seasons with the Colts, the 6-foot, 193-pound wide receiver started 12 of 40 games and has 99 career receptions for 1,307 yards and seven touchdowns.
