The Patriots released offensive lineman Hayden Howerton, the team announced Friday.
New England signed Howerton to the practice squad Nov. 1, and then signed him to a futures contract with Jan. 10.
Howerton, 24, went to training camp with the Titans after being signed as a rookie free agent out of Southern Methodist.
Tennessee waived the 6-foot-3, 300-pounder on Aug. 30.
He made 53 starts during his college career with 39 starts at left guard, 12 at center and two at right guard.
