The Patriots announced the release of rookie receiver Matt Roark today.
The 6-foot-5, 214-pound Roark had been signed as a free agent on May 10 and was a longshot to make the roster. He had reported for training camp on Wednesday with the rest of the team's rookies and was placed on the active/non-football injury list.
