Agent: Patriots release LB Cameron Gordon

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots released first-year linebacker Cameron Gordon on Monday, according to Gordon's agent, Brett Tessler.

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.
