Patriots Release FB Glenn Gronkowski From Practice Squad

The New England Patriots have released FB Glenn Gronkowski from their practice squad to make room for RB D.J. Foster, who has been signed to the unit after clearing waivers on Tuesday.

The Patriots’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. G Chris Barker
  2. WR Devin Lucien
  3. WR DeAndrew White
  4. WR Shaq Evans
  5. G Jamil Douglas
  6. G Chase Farris
  7. LB Trevor Bates
  8. RB Tyler Gaffney
  9. RB D.J. Foster
  10. TE Kennard Backman

Gronkowski, 23, wound up signing on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State back in May. He managed to make the 53-man roster a few weeks ago, but will not have to pass through waivers before signing on with a team of his choosing.

Gronkowski signed a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Bills but was waived a month ago. He’s been on and off of the Patriots’ practice squad this year.

During his three-year college career, Gronkowski totaled 51 rushing yards on 16 carries (3.2 YPC) to go along with 15 receptions for 369 yards receiving and six total touchdowns.
