Patriots Releasing K Stephen Gostkowski


Jim McBride reports that the Patriots are releasing veteran K Stephen Gostkowski on Monday. 

Gostkowski, 36, is a former fourth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2006. He finished out his four-year, $17.2 million contract before agreeing to a two-year deal worth $8.5 million last year. 

Gostkowski was set to make a base salary of $3.5 million for the 2020 season. According to, releasing Gostkowski will free up $3,487,500 of available cap space while creating $1.4 million in dead money. 

Gostkowski has played his entire 14-year career in New England.

In 2019, Gostkowski appeared in four games for the Patriots and converted 7 of 8 field goal attempts (87.5 percent) to go along with 11 of 15 extra point tries (73.3 percent).
