Patriots make moves at tight end

The Patriots released TE Alex Smith, just months after trading a fifth-round draft pick to the Buccaneers for his services.

Smith, a fifth-year NFL veteran, was the loser in a crowded tight end group that includes Chris Baker and Ben Watson. The Patriots also traded TE David Thomas to the Saints for a 2011 undisclosed draft pick, then appeared to spin that selection to the Giants in exchange for TE Michael Matthews.
