Patriots release safety Steve Gregory

The Patriots released veteran safety Steve Gregory Friday, a move made primarily to create salary cap space.

The 31-year old Gregory signed a three-year deal in 2012, and was slated to count $3.683 million against the cap for 2014. Releasing him means the Patriots gain $2.85 million against the cap. Only the remainder of his $2.5 million prorated signing bonus ($833,333) will remain on the books.
