Patriots release Joseph Addai

The Patriots released running back Joseph Addai on Wednesday, after he failed his physical. However, a league source had said in June, after the team’s minicamp, that the former Colt was unimpressive during spring camps.

Injury struggles are not a recent development for Addai: He played in just 20 games in 2010 and ’11 for Indianapolis.
