According to published reports, the Patriots have released linebacker Tully Banta-Cain this afternoon.

So far this season Banta-Cain had 10 Solo tackles and three assisted, along with three sacks.

Banta-Cain’s release comes just a day after head coach Bill Belichick benched linebacker Adalius Thomas for what was reportedly done because of the veteran’s lack of production so far this season.¬† With this second move it appears there is a shake up coming at this position, so we’ll have to wait and see what transpires.
