Patriots Release LB Adalius Thomas

The New England Patriots announced that they have released linebacker Adalius Thomas.

Signed to a five-year, $35 million dollar contract in 2007, Thomas totaled 146 tackles, including 14.5 quarterback sacks, and 1 interceptions during his three seasons in New England. The 6-2, 270-pound Thomas found himself in head coach Bill Belichick's last season, benched for one game and sent home for being late for practice during a freak Fall snowstorm.

Thomas also raised concerns to Shalize Manza Young of the Boston Globe that the Patriots mishandled a broken forearm that ended his 2008 season.

A sixth-round pick (186th overall) out of Southern Mississippi by the Baltimore Ravens in 2000, Thomas, 32, has 517 tackles, 53 quarterback sacks, 7 interceptions and 15 forced fumbles during his 10-year career.

Thomas had two years and $11 million dollars remaining on his contract.
