FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots released cornerback Marquice Cole Thursday, according to the NFL transaction wire.
There was no corresponding roster move from the team.
Cole, 30, who signed with New England in 2012 as a free agent, has played in 13 games this season, with 10 tackles and an interception on defense and eight special-teams tackles.
This is the fourth time this season the Patriots have released Cole; earlier this season, as he was dealing with injury, he was cut and re-signed to give the team an open roster spot for games.
This is his first roster move since Oct. 7 when he was re-signed.
