Patriots Cut Ties With Michael Jenkins

The Patriots are continuing to make it clear that they’re very happy with the young receivers on their roster.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team has released veteran wide receiver Michael Jenkins on Thursday.

Jenkins has been hampered by a hamstring injury recently, which didn’t do him any favors in a battle for snaps against rookies Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins.
