Injured tight end Jake Ballard, who was claimed by the Patriots on Tuesday, released the following statement on Tuesday evening, as tweeted by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter:

"While this was very sudden and I am still experiencing a great deal of differing emotions, I wanted to take a moment to say Thank You and place some closure on a wonderful chapter in my life. I will greatly miss my teammates, the fans, the organization, and albeit short-lived, I will forever cherish all the great memories that we created during my time in a Giant uniform. Simultaneously, I am humbled by the opportunity that the Patriots have afforded me and as I have always done, I will bring nothing but hard work, professionalism, and integrity to what is already a world class organization. Sincerely, Jake Ballard."
