The New England Patriots announced Monday that they’ve placed FB Joey Iosef on waivers.
Iosefa, 24, was taken in the seventh-round of this year’s NFL draft out of Hawaii. He had three years remaining on his four-year, $2,348,340 rookie contract when the Buccaneers waived him earlier in the week.
The Patriots signed Iosefa to their practice squad back in October before they promoted to their active roster a few weeks ago.
This season, Iosefa has appeared in two games and ran for 51 yards on 15 carries (3.4 YPC) and no touchdowns.
