Patriots Waive WR Greg Orton, Sign WRs Cole Stanford & Brian Tyms

 

Jeff Howe of The Boston Herald first reported that the Patriots have waived WR Greg Orton.

Orton, 27, just signed with the team a few days ago, but unfortunately suffered a torn Achilles during Friday’s practice.

He originally signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in 2009. Orton has bounced around with a number of teams since then including the Broncos, Omaha Nighthawks, Arizona Rattlers and the Spokane Shock. Orton has yet to appear in an NFL game.
