Former Patriot LB Tyrone McKenzie cut by Tampa Bay
Tyrone McKenzie, the third round pick of the Patriots in the 2009 draft has been released by Tampa Bay.
I know some are down on him here for asking for his release, but he did seem like a very mature and upstanding young guy. I can't help but wonder how much that freak knee injury in his very first minicamp, before he even had a chance to sign a contract derailed his athleticism.
The Bucs did not re-sign their starting MLB from 2010, in part I believe because Tampa Bay had McKenzie penciled in to take his place. But rookie Mason Foster - the guy who was fined for the helmet-to-helmit hit on Ochocinco - quickly took over the starting role once camp began. Yesterday they tried McKenzie at OLB against the Redskins, but apparently he failed to impress there as well.

Re: Former Patriot LB Tyrone McKenzie cut by Tampa Bay
Might not be a bad guy to bring back onto the practice squad in case Mayo or Fletcher ever go down.
Hard worker, great motor, very responsible and mature kid......and he knows the system here (and can get up on the "tweaks" for this season). Problem was he just never got healthy quickly enough for the Pats in time for last season.
