Source: Aiken, Develin clear waivers

By Field Yates

Wide receiver Kamar Aiken and fullback James Develin, both waived by the Patriots on Monday, have cleared waivers and are now free agents, according to a league source.

Each player was previously promoted from the Patriots' practice squad to the active roster, and each appeared in one game.

Both players retain practice-squad eligibility, and the Patriots have three open spots on their practice squad, opening the door for one or both to return in that capacity.
