Russell Bodine lasted all of one week in New England.
The Patriots released the center seven days after acquiring him via trade from the Buffalo Bills, the team announced on Friday.
New England re-signed center James Ferentz, who was released during roster cuts last Saturday.
The Patriots gave up a sixth-round pick to bring in Bodine, a five-year NFL veteran who was Buffalo's starting center last season.
The 27-year-old was expected to compete for David Andrews' vacant spot at center, but it appears Bill Belichick and Co. are more comfortable with Ferentz, who spent the previous two seasons in New England.
Ferentz likely will back up Ted Karras, who seems in line to start at center Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Bodine told us he got a few snaps with Brady in his first practice with the team. Was here about a week. Patriots moving on.— Phil Perry (@PhilAPerry) September 6, 2019
Ferentz now looking like the backup center. Spent a lot of time at guard this summer. Karras got the center reps when Andrews was out. https://t.co/ysFW1soy5l
