Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe reported Sunday night that the Patriots have released third-year veteran Matt Gutierrez.

This shakes up the quarterback depth chart, and it appears New England may already have a replacement in mind for Gutierrez. Reiss also reported that the Patriots have officially announced that they’ve signed free-agent quarterback Andrew Walter.

Walter is 27, and has played four years in the NFL, all with the Raiders. He has started 15 games, throwing 3 touchdowns and 16 interceptions during his brief NFL career. Walter was waived by Oakland on July 30, 2009.

    I meant BOB, not Ian, sorry, reading all your articles too fast. And…upon further review, perhaps the Hightower INT with the ball bouncing off the receiver was the luckiest break for the Pats. Collins’ dropback ability and speed were crucial on his INT. It will be interesting to see if he gets matched up against a Moreno or a Gates.
