Patriots Release Veteran DE Frank Kearse From I.R. With Settlement

The New England Patriots officially released DE Frank Kearse from injured reserve on Thursday with an injury settlement.

Kearse, 27, is a former seventh-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2011. However, he lasted just a few months in Miami before he later signed on with the Panthers.

Since then, Kearse has played for the Titans and Cowboys before joining the Redskins on a one-year contract back in May of last year. The Patriots signed him to a one-year contract this past March.

The Patriots placed Kearse on injured reserve this past weekend.

In 2015, Kearse appeared in four games for the Redskins and recorded four tackles and a sack.
