FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots have released receiver Anthony Gonzalez less than three months after signing him.
Also Tuesday, the Patriots signed free agent offensive lineman Jamey Richard, rookie free agent tight end Nick Melillo and seventh-round draft choice Alfonzo Dennard, a defensive back.
He has been active for only 11 games since the 2008 season.
Dennard was selected with the 224th pick overall from Nebraska, where he was the 2011 Big Ten defensive back of the year.
