Tiquan Underwood has reportedly been released by the New England Patriots for the second time in three months.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that a source told him Underwood has been let go by the Patriots for the second time in three months.
Underwood's previous release came in the most heartless of ways, on the day before the Super Bowl. The Patriots used his vacated roster spot to sign defensive end Alex Silvestro, who did not play a single down in the Super Bowl. They then re-signed Underwood two days later.
Underwood appeared in three games for the Patriots in 2011, catching three passes for 30 yards. Despite his limited role he became a bit of a fan favorite, at least partially due to his high-top fade haircut.
