Any team with interest in acquiring him will until 4 pm EST today to place a claim.

The New England Patriots made the decision to release Bodden on Friday despite leading the league in passing yards allowed. The moved seemed a bit strange as they were only a few days away from playing a tough Steelers team but the Patriots aren’t afraid to make quick roster decisions.
