Default lloyd, colvin cut plus others

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots have released linebacker Rosevelt Colvin, who was a member of two Super Bowl winning teams but also missed significant time with injuries.

Colvin signed with the Patriots as an unrestricted free agent in March 2003.

In his first season in New England, he started the first two games before suffering a season-ending hip injury at Philadelphia on Sept. 14.

He played in the first 11 games last season before missing the remainder of the season and the playoffs with a foot injury suffered Nov. 25.

He has 414 tackles, 52.5 sacks, three interceptions, 13 forced fumbles and nine fumble recoveries in nine seasons with the Patriots and Bears.

The Patriots on Tuesday also released linebacker Oscar Lua, the team's seventh-round draft pick in 2007 who missed the entire season with a knee injury.
ASHBURN, Va. -- Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd was released by the Washington Redskins, ending his disappointing stay with the team.

He caught only 25 passes with no touchdowns in two seasons with the Redskins. His totals were two catches for 14 yards last season, when he broke his collarbone in November.

Lloyd already had fallen out of favor with the team because of his work ethic and lack of productivity.

The Redskins traded two draft picks to the San Francisco 49ers to acquire Lloyd before the 2006 season. They then signed him to a long-term contract that included $10 million in guaranteed money.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs released veteran wide receiver Eddie Kennison on Tuesday.

Kennison, 35, played for the Chiefs for seven seasons and was their top wide receiver for most of that time. But last season, he was limited by hamstring and shoulder injuries to only eight games, catching 13 passes for 101 yards.

The 6-1, 201-pound receiver played in 91 games for the Chiefs, catching 321 passes for 5,230 yards and 25 touchdowns. He had 1,000-yard receiving seasons in 2004 and 2005, joining Carlos Carson as the only players in Chiefs history to accomplish that feat.

Besides the Chiefs, Kennison has played for St. Louis, New Orleans, Chicago and Denver during his 12-year career.

Seems like the Patriots* are cutting people to make room for Moss and his big contract.

Pretty sure that Moss didn't help them win a superbowl and that the defenses have figured out how to prevent him from killing you, it took an entire season but it worked in the playoffs and the sb. Good defenses drove Brady nuts in the playoffs, if the chargers could score in the RedZone, that came would have been way different.

Pretty sure the Defense that allowed Eli to drive the field and score with 36 seconds left is the reason the Pats lost that game. Why spend all that money on one guy when you need to replace at least 4 on the defensive side of the ball? Going to try and outscore everyone again? Yeah...that worked out well didn't it.
