The Patriots have made yet another roster move at the tight end position, announcing the release of D.J. Williams on Thursday.
A fourth-year pro from Arkansas, Williams appeared in two games for New England in the 2013 regular season. He has also played for Jacksonville (2013) and Green Bay (2011-2012).
The Packers selected the 25-year-old Williams in the fifth round in 2011. He reportedly has dealt with a leg injury of late.
The move leaves the Patriots with four tight ends.
The Patriots also announced the release of defensive lineman Marcus Forston, a second-year pro who played in three games for New England a season ago.
The Pats have three open roster spots.
