FOXBORO, MA — The Patriots have cut veteran tight end Ben Coates.

With the signing of Lawyer Milloy nearing and the squeeze of the salary cap, New England needed to free up some of its cap money. Unfortunately for Coates he became the surprising casualty.

Coates was set to earn about $3 million this season, but his unproductive season in 1999 and his off the field problems may have lead to his release.

Coates started 15 of 16 games last season, but only had 32 receptions for 370yds and 2 touchdowns.
