The New England Patriots released DL  Seali’i Epenesa, and picked up BYU rookie DL Eathyn Manumaleuna.

The Patriots signed Epenesa last month out of UCLA. Epenesa played in 41 games for the Bruins, and totaled 46 tackles and one sack.

During Manumaleuna’s career at BYU, he played in 56 games, totaling 144 tackles, seven for loss, and 6.5 sacks. He missed the 2012 season due to a knee injury.

Manumaleuna was signed by the Giants in May and then released a month later.
