Patriots release DT Love for medical reasons

The SportsXchange

For the second time this week, the New England Patriots released a contributing defensive lineman. On Wednesday, starting defensive tackle Kyle Love followed Brandon Deaderick out the door.

Love confirmed the transaction via his Twitter feed.

The Boston Herald reported Love lost more than 20 pounds in a short time and last month was diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes. Per the report, the Patriots informed Love he was being released based on medical uncertainty.

Love, 26, spent three seasons in the NFL, all with the Patriots.
