The New England Patriots just released OLB Cameron Gordon. He spent 2014 on their Injured Reserve and was a highly-sought after Free Agent.— Brett Tessler (@TesslerSports) May 18, 2015
Gordon, who was a priority free agent after going undrafted in 2014, injured himself in training camp last year. The Michigan alum earned $35,000 in guaranteed money from the Patriots, which was the highest total of any undrafted free agent signed by the team last year.
Gordon was viewed as a longshot to earn a roster spot, and his release comes the same day in which the Patriots signed free-agent linebacker Brandon Spikes.
This puts the Patriots' roster at 89 players, one shy of the limit.
