The New England Patriots are releasing running back Devine Ozigbo, according to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.

Ozigbo, 25, joined the Patriots as a practice squad player in November and was signed to a reserve/futures contract despite not seeing any game action. The Patriots now have an extremely crowded running back room following the addition of Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Patriots locker room now consists of Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson, James White, Strong Jr., J.J. Taylor and Harris. D. Harris is on the final year of his contract and White is coming off a major hip injury — which could justify the choice to select two running backs in the draft.

The Patriots will continue to trim down the roster in the near future now that the draft is over.
