Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com reported on Saturday that linebacker Tyrone McKenzie has asked for his release.
According to Reiss New England granted his request to be released off¬†of the practice squad, as McKenzie wanted to be free¬†to pursue other opportunities.
McKenzie was taken in the 3rd round of the 2009 draft, but tore his ACL during minicamp that year.¬† He spent all of that year on injured reserve, and failed to break into the line-up this year despite having a strong training camp early on.
He was waived back on September 5th before spending this season on the practice squad.
