The Patriots have released cornerback/special-teamer Marquice Cole, the club said Friday.

The move opens a spot on the Patriots’ 53-player roster.

Cole played in the Patriots’ first three games but did not record any statistics. The 29-year-old Northwestern product has appeared in 54 combined regular-season games in five seasons for the Jets (2009-2011) and Patriots (2012-2013). According to the Patriots, Cole has notched 43 special-teams tackles and 26 defensive tackles in his NFL career.

The unbeaten Patriots play at 1-2 Atlanta on Sunday night on NBC.

    Why would the Patriots sign a wide receiver when they have the great Danny Amendola?

    Special teams move. Slater out and Coles has a hammy.

    Curious. Slater is also down and I believe Cole has played the role of gunner before.

    no way it WR

    it will be O lineman from the practice squad

    Vollmer and Svitek were both limited and questionable

    Silly people, this move was to free up a spot for Tebow.

    How would anyone expect a WR from outside of the system to suddenly come in?

    Who the hell would be able to instantly come in and pick up a playbook like that, especially at the second most complicated position on the team outside of QB?

    When have we ever seen a WR come in as an outsider during the middle of the season? The last one was Jabar Gaffney who had a pathetic season in 2006 and didn’t contribute a damn thing until the postseason.

    On top of that they’re getting Amendola back soon, and have Sims on the practice squad, along with Harrison who can come back in 2 weeks from the NFI list. Those guys are way beyond any outsider who would be inactive for quite some time.
