A Patriot career ends too soon. The Patriots have informed WR Malcolm Mitchell that he is being released
Patriots have released WR Malcolm Mitchell. Really flashed as a rookie but has battled injury problems

I was really looking forward to seeing Mitchell develop on this team but sadly injuries have kept him sidelined for most of his career. Mitchell shined during his rookie year but has been plagued by injury.
Before releasing him, the Patriots attempted to ship him around for a poptential deal, but couldn’t find any suitors.
Mitchell last played for the Patriots in 2016 when he racked up 32 receptions for 401 yards and 4 TD’s. He also racked up 6 catches for 70 yards in the Super Bowl vs the Falcons.
