Shea McClellin Thanks Patriots Following His ReleaseWinslow Townson - USA TODAY Sports

On Twitter Monday, linebacker Shea McClellin voiced his appreciation for the Patriots and the fans following his release from the team after a failed physical.

In March 2016, McClellin signed a three-year, $8.95 million contract with the Patriots and contributed to the teams fifth Super Bowl championship with 39 tackles, a sack, and a fumble recovery. Notable 2016 moments included a blocked field goal attempt against the Baltimore Ravens when he leaped over the line of scrimmage and a 69-yard fumble return against the Miami Dolphins for a team record longest return. The NFL would ban McClellin’s leap play the following offseason, citing safety concerns.

In 2017, McClellin was placed on injured reserve in September and never saw the field again following a concussion. By releasing McClellin, the Patriots cleared $2.3 million dollars of cap space.
