Source: Patriots to cut TE Daniel Fells

By Mike Reiss

The Patriots have informed veteran tight end Daniel Fells that he will be released, according to a source.

The decision doesn't come as a big surprise as the seven-year veteran played deep into Thursday night's preseason finale. He was set to earn a base salary of $1.25 million and wasn't included on either of ESPNBoston's final roster projections.

In his one season with the Patriots, in 2012, Fells caught four passes for 85 yards.
