Veteran wide receiver Dontrelle Inman requested his release from the New England Patriots on Sunday, and the club has granted his request, according to a league source.
The Patriots officially announced the move on Sunday evening.
Inman's release comes on the same day that wide receiver Josh Gordon was allowed to join the Patriots, with the club placing Gordon on the active/non-football injury list, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Gordon is not yet cleared to practice, but he can be removed from the list at any time.
Mayock told reporters today that Brown is not at practice because he’s still angry the NFL won’t let him wear the helmet of his choice, and Mayock left little doubt that it’s beginning to wear on the team that everyone else is working hard while Brown is not.
Mayock's quote from the story pretty much summed up the situation: “Here’s the bottom line: He’s upset about the helmet issue," Mayock said. "We have supported that, we appreciate that. But at this point, we’ve pretty much exhausted all avenues of relief. So from our perspective, it’s time for him to be all in or all out. We’re hoping he’s back soon."
