Patriots Release Pair of Penn Staters

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick might be getting a phone call from his old friend Bill O’Brien after this week.

The New England Patriots announced the release of two 2012 Penn State football players this week — defensive back Stephon Morris and center Matt Stankiewitch. Both players were signed as undrafted free agents and both appear to have suffered injuries at training camp that led to their releases.

“I pulled my hamstring during a conditioning test,” Stankiewitch told his hometown paper. “The team placed me on the TUP (temporarily unable to perform) list. With camp about to start, they wanted 90 guys in camp.

“They told me when they released me that they want me back in two weeks when I’m healthy. Hopefully I get a call back when I’m healthy.”

Morris, of course, took to Twitter to discuss his situation with New England:

 

Good luck to both players. We hope to see them both playing on Sunday in a couple months.
