Patriots Release Veteran Safety Obi Melifonwu

The Patriots continued reshaping the team’s roster following the NFL draft, reportedly releasing veteran safety Obi Melifonwu, Hayden Bird of the Boston Globe reports.

The news came in a report from ESPN NFL insider Field Yates, who said Melifonwu had been informed of his release.

The 26-year-old safety, who was originally drafted in the second round out of the University of Connecticut by the Raiders in 2017, was signed by the Patriots in 2018. He was waived by New England in September 2019 before rejoining the team’s practice squad for the duration of the season.
