Fred Davis’s tenure in New England didn’t last long.
Davis, the tight end who signed with the Patriots last month, was released by the team today. The Patriots apparently decided after this week’s minicamp that Davis simply didn’t fit on a tight end depth chart featuring star Rob Gronkowski and veterans Michael Hoomanawanui and Scott Chandler.
The Patriots cut Tim Wright earlier in the offseason. Scott Chandler is a solid tight end and is shaping up to be a sleeper at the position since the team utilizes a lot of two-TE sets.
