Patriots waive Tre’ Jackson

The Patriots got cornerback Malcolm Butler back under contract on Tuesday when he signed his restricted free agent tender, but they also parted ways with a member of the team.

The NFL’s daily transaction wire brings word that the Patriots have waived guard Tre’ Jackson.

Jackson was a third-round pick in 2015 and made nine starts during his rookie season with New England. He hurt his knee late in that season, however, and never made it on the field last season after having surgery in the offseason.

The Patriots obviously coped just fine without Jackson and the timing of the release suggests they’re not worried about moving forward without him in 2017. Just 24, Jackson will likely get a look elsewhere as the year plays out as long as he’s healthy.

The transaction wire also brings news that tight end Matt Lengel has signed his exclusive rights free agent tender.

    He played well when he was on the field. Damn shame he never made it back out there. Hopefully he gets a shot with another team.

    Jackson wanted minimum wage. The Pats said no.

    Seahawks should bring him in, they need help on the O-Line.

    Here’s hoping Jackson gets healthy, because he’s a quality starting OG when everything’s working right.

    Decent to good run blocker, but struggles in protection.
