Aug. 18 (UPI) -- The New England Patriots released veteran wide receiver Dontrelle Inman, the team announced Sunday.
League sources told ESPN that Inman requested his release from the Patriots and the club granted his request.
Inman's release from the team comes on the same day that star wide receiver Josh Gordon was eligible to rejoin the Patriots. Gordon, who was reinstated by the NFL over the weekend, was placed on the active/non-football injury list, according to ESPN.
Inman went undrafted in 2011 but spent time on the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad before joining the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Inman, who signed a one-year contract with the Patriots this off-season, appeared in both of New England's preseason games this season, recording three catches for 40 yards.
