Patriots release former MU receiver T.J. Moe

The New England Patriots released former Missouri wide receiver T.J. Moe on Friday.

According to multiple reports, Moe – who signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in April – was released under the waived/injured designation, meaning the Patriots can still place him on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

The Boston Herald reported Moe, who was not available for comment, suffered a torn Achilles in practice this week.

The Patriots gave the 6-foot, 200-pound Moe – who caught 188 passes for 2,101 yards and 11 touchdowns as an inside receiver at MU – the most guaranteed money of any of their undrafted free agents this April, as he agreed to a deal with a $30,000 in guaranteed base salary and $8,000 signing bonus.

He was among his position’s top performers at the NFL Combine in the bench press (26 reps), three-cone shuttle (6.53 seconds), 20-yard shuttle (3.96 seconds) and 60-yard shuttle (10.87 seconds). He also posted a 4.74 40-yard dash, which he pared down to around 4.5
