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.

Roark's release leaves the Patriots with two open spots on the 90-man roster.

Wide receiver re-set:
Deion Branch
Britt Davis
Jeremy Ebert
Julian Edelman
Jabar Gaffney
Jesse Holley
Brandon Lloyd
Donte' Stallworth
Matthew Slater
Wes Welker
