Patriots release Gregory

Posted:

The Patriots will release safety Steve Gregory, according to his agent David Canter on his Twittter account Friday (Patriots.com).

By cutting Gregory, who started 23 games over two season with the Patriots, the Pats will save $2.85 million on the 2014 salary cap.  Could that money be used to resign free agent Aqib Talib? Time will tell.

UPDATE: The Patriots have made the move official at 3:30pm.
