Veteran safety Adrian Wilson expressed an elemental NFL truth on Twitter this afternoon, followed immediately by a realization of that truth.

Moments after sending out “Can’t make the club in the tub,” he tweeted out a goodbye to the Patriots organization.

According to Mike Reiss of, the team informed him of his release Friday.

The 34-year-old safety didn’t play a snap for the Patriots, after tearing his Achilles in the preseason finale.

He signed a three-year, $5 million deal with them last offseason, but was made expendable when they brought back Patrick Chung this week.

There were reports that he’d be healthy enough to start offseason conditioning in April, and if that’s the case, he’s going to have to do it somewhere other than Gillette Stadium.
