Source: Aiken, Develin clear waivers

Wide receiver Kamar Aiken and fullback James Develin, both waived by the Patriots on Monday, have cleared waivers and are now free agents, according to a league source.

Each player was previously promoted from the Patriots' practice squad to the active roster, and each appeared in one game.

Both players retain practice-squad eligibility, and the Patriots have three open spots on their practice squad, opening the door for one or both to return in that capacity.
