Offensive guard Tyrone Green was placed on injured reserve and offensive lineman Kevin Haslam and wide receiver Michael Jenkins were released by the New England Patriots.

Green signed with the Patriots May 13, was released on May 31, and re-signed July 25. The 6-foot-2, 316-pounder, was working with the third team offense in training camp. A fourth-round (133rd overall) draft pick out of Auburn in 2009, Green has played in 41 NFL games with 28 starts at both guard positions. Last season in San Diego, Green started 13 games at left guard.

Haslam was claimed off waivers and awarded to New England from San Diego on May 22. He has three years experience with the Jacksonville Jaguars (2010-11) and San Diego Chargers (2012).

Jenkins, 31, was signed by the Patriots as a free agent on March 28. A nine-year veteran, Jenkins has played for the Atlanta Falcons (2004-10) and Minnesota Vikings (2011-12). A first-round draft choice (No. 29 overall) by the Falcons out of Ohio State in 2004, he signed with the Minnesota Vikings on July 30, 2011. After two seasons with the Vikings, Jenkins was released in March.

He has played in 130 NFL games with 79 starts and has 354 receptions for 4,427 yards and 25 touchdowns.
