The Patriots announced the release of linebacker A.J. Edds, offensive lineman R.J. Mattes and defensive lineman Scott Vallone.

All were longshots to make the roster.

The Patriots now have six open roster spots on their 90-man roster.

Of the three players released, Mattes injured his ankle in Friday's preseason win over the Buccaneers.
