Report: Patriots release DL Bill Murray


With less than 24 hours to go before the NFL's cutdown deadline, the New England Patriots have reportedly released another player.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reported that the team has released defensive lineman Bill Murray Monday as New England approaches the 53-man roster limit by Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline.

Murray, an undrafted free agent who spent training camp last summer with the Patriots prior to being released, had 1.5 sacks in the team's preseason finale Sunday against the New York Giants. He'd go on to spend the remainder of the 2020 season on New England's practice squad.

The 24-year-old would appear to be a candidate to again return to the practice squad in 2021 should he clear waivers. Murray, a native of New Jersey, played collegiately at William & Mary.
