New England Patriots

The Patriots announced on Thursday that they released offensive lineman Jason King.

The 24-year-old King signed with the Patriots on a futures contract in February. He originally joined New England as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue in 2017.

After being released from the Patriots before the start of the 2017 season, King signed with the Baltimore Ravens squad on Oct. 31. He was subsequently released by the Ravens in November before re-joining the Patriots practice squad in November.

The Pats then released King again on Dec. 2, 2017, before again re-signing him to the practice squad on Dec. 5.

New England is not without depth on the offensive line entering 2018 offseason activities. Tackle Marcus Cannon, guards Joe Thuney and Shaq Mason, and center David Andrews remain likely starters. In their quest to find their next starting left tackle, they have 23rd overall pick Isaiah Wynn and trade acquisition Trent Brown in the fold. Linemen LaAdrian Waddle, Tony Garcia, Ted Karras, Andrew Jelks, Cole Croston, Matt Tobin, and Luke Bowanko also remain under contract for 2018. (UPDATE: Garcia has been released, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.)
