Well, that didn't last long.

Patriots tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. signed with the club just over a week ago back on September 19th, but it appears his stay on the club will be short lived. According to ESPN's Mike Reiss & Adam Schefter the veteran requested and received his release from the team, ending his tenure in New England.

Winslow played Sunday night against the Ravens and was targeted twice, with one reception for 12-yards.

Both of his targets came in the 3rd quarter:

1st Down - 1 Target, 1 Reception, 12 Yards
2nd Down - 1 Target, 0 Receptions

One other note of good news: Aaron Hernandez was seen by several reporters today walking around the locker room without crutches and without his walking boot. According to those who saw him there didn't appear to be any bruising on the ankle, and it's encouraging after reports had initially said he suffered a high-ankle sprain that would keep him out 4-6 weeks.

The team is currently preparing to take on the Bills this Sunday in Buffalo.
