Update 4:00 PM: Steve Duemig of WDAE is disputing this report
Update 12:45 PM: Sirius NFL Radio and 610 Sports here in KC are also reporting this.
Galloway was released today by the New England Patriots, who are causing the rumor mill to churn by releasing three other players including Tully Banta-Cain (Update: Pats re-signed Banta-Cain), Eric Alexander and Michael Matthews.
Galloway is a 38 year old 15 year NFL veteran. He was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks eighth overall in the 1995 draft. In 2000, the Dallas Cowboys traded two first round picks for the rights to Galloway. In 2004, he moved to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before being released in February of this year.
He later signed a one year deal with the Patriots but has been inactive the last three games. The word is that he was inactive because of a lack of production and difficulty learning the Patriots offense.
He had just seven receptions for 67 yards this season.
Since Galloway was released before 3:00 PM CST today, he is not subject to waivers which means he can now choose his own team. Classy move, Pats.
