Patriots cut Austin Seferian-Jenkins

The Patriots did offer Adam Humphries a contract in free agency, but the new Titans receiver said he worried about Tom Brady's age when considering whether or not to play for New England.

The ASJ era is over in New England. There was one?

Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has gotten his walking papers from the Patriots, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com. The move came during the team’s mandatory minicamp.

The former Buccaneers, Jet, and Jaguars was a second-round pick in Tampa five years ago. He had received a $50,000 signing bonus to join the Patriots, which is all he’ll have to show for his time with the team.

Coupled with veteran tight end Ben Watson’s four-game PED suspension, the Patriots have a real need at the position. They’ve been linked via rumor to Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph, who is entering the final year of his contract.
