FOXBOROUGH, Mass.-- According to a tweet from Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com, thePatriots have waived rookie wide receiver T.J. Moe. Yates tweeted the following earlier today and credited CSNNE.com’s Tom E. Curran with the initial report.
The Patriots waived/injured rookie WR TJ Moe, released OL Tyrone Green & had a visit with former Saints DT Sedrick Ellis, source confirms.
As Yates’ report notes, Moe went undrafted this year after having a very good career at Missouri. His salary of $30,000 was the most money that New England gave to an undrafted free agent this year. His best game at the college level last season came against Arizona State on September 15, when he caught eight passes for 88 yards, an average of 11 yards per catch. In total, he amassed 40 catches for 388 yards and a touchdown on the season.
As noted earlier via Twitter by Dave Matter, the Missouri athletics beat writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and STLToday.com , Moe suffered a season –ending injury, which may have been a contributing factor in his release.
League source confirms that Patriots rookie TJ Moe suffered a season-ending torn Achilles' tendon.
If Moe clears waivers he will go on injured reserve. There is no doubt that he has great potential and he still has the opportunity to reach it. However, at this juncture, it looks like he will not be doing so in a Patriots’ uniform.
