Patriots release veteran TE Chandler, receiver LaFell

Patriots release veteran TE Chandler, receiver LaFell

New England Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell stiff-arms Washington Redskins strong safety Trenton Robinson during a November 8 game. LaFell was supposed to be counted on as a quality backup receiver and could not catch a ball for the majority of the season, and he only recorded 37 receptions and 515 yards after having a spectacular 2014.

LaFell signed with the Patriots from the Carolina Panthers in 2014 and had a career-high seven touchdowns in his first season.

On Wednesday, the Patriots released both players. Unfortunately for him, due to his inconsistency he was passed on the depth chart by mid-season acquisition Keshawn Martin late in the year and by the time of the AFC Championship Game was only the team's fifth target.

Asked if they would approach the Supreme Court, he said, "We haven't got the order yet". It asked him to furnish a personal bond of 10,000 rupees and a surety of like amount.

However, the story looks less successful when the entirety of his career as a Patriot is looked at: a good first year, an inconsistent second year and a release before the third year even started.

First I want to thank the Kraft family and Bill for giving me the opportunity to play for a first class organization. He had 23 receptions for 259 yards and four touchdowns, mainly as the team's No. 3 tight end. "My teammates for the relationship and memories on and off the field". In the playoffs he added 13 receptions for 119 yards with two touchdowns, including an 11-yard touchdown in the Super Bowl. 80,17,87,11,32,30,21,26,91,54,95,18 and the OLine gonna miss you boy.
