Patriots release RB Huggins

Just one day after being signed, veteran running back Kareem Huggins was released by the Patriots, the team announced on Sunday afternoon.

Huggins went undrafted in 2009 out of Hoftsta, and was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a free agent, where he spent two seasons (2009-2010). He did not play in the NFL in 2011.

The Patriots listed Huggins, 5-foot-9, 198 pounds as a fullback, although he has previous experience as a running back. The 26-year has played in three career games, totaling four carries for 11 yards rushing.
