Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe reported Sunday night that the Patriots have released third-year veteran Matt Gutierrez.

This shakes up the quarterback depth chart, and it appears New England may already have a replacement in mind for Gutierrez. Reiss also reported that the Patriots have officially announced that they've signed free-agent quarterback Andrew Walter.

Walter is 27, and has played four years in the NFL, all with the Raiders. He has started 15 games, throwing 3 touchdowns and 16 interceptions during his brief NFL career. Walter was waived by Oakland on July 30, 2009.
