Multiple sources have confirmed this afternoon to Patsfans.com that wide receiver Chad Jackson has been released by the Patriots. The receiver, taken in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Florida, finished the preseason with seven catches for 66 yards and two touchdowns. Jackson had struggled with injury the last two seasons, including hamstring and knee problems. As for Jackson, his future is unclear. Because he was released with less than a week before the start of the regular season, opportunities could be few and far between for the 23-year-old. However, one source indicated he could land with Baltimore.
