Cardinals CB Alfonzo Dennard: Release from Patriots 'shocking'
by Marty Gitlin |

Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is now with the Cardinals, but he has given one minor parting shot to the Patriots, from whom he considers his recent release stunning.

"It was shocking, because I thought I did everything right," he told the Cardinals team website. "I guess they had other plans and I wasn't in it. But I'm happy to be here with the Cardinals."

Dennard wasn't alone among secondary personnel dumped by New England this offseason. Kyle Arrington was also released. Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, meanwhile, left via free agency. But Dennard had been a starter pretty much since he was drafted despite his status as a seventh-round pick.

A hamstring injury ended his 2014 season after six games.

It certainly didn't take long for cornerback Alfonzo Dennard to land a job. One day after his release from the Patriots, the Cardinals officially announced a waiver claim on him.

The three-year veteran fell off the charts in 2014 after two strong years with New England in which he played in 23 games and contributed to 75 tackles.

As expected, the Patriots have announced the release of cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, who exceeded expectations for three years after having been taken in the seventh round of the 2012 draft.

Dennard started 20 of 29 games in which he played and racked up 92 tackles and five interceptions. He also started in four postseason games with two picks. But he played just six games a year ago and lost time to a hamstring injury.

Long snapper Tyler Ott and linebacker Deontae Skinner were also cut loose by the Patriots on Tuesday.

Patriots place CB Alfonzo Dennard on injured reserve
by Igor Mello |

The Patriots placed cornerback Alfonzo Dennard on season-ending injured reserve with a hamstring injury, reports Field Yates of ESPN on Saturday. Dennard appeared in only six games this season, registering 15 combined tackles and one interception -- all season lows.

In corresponding moves, the Patriots elevated wide receiver Josh Boyce from the practice squad to take the spot of Dennard on the 53-man active roster. They re-signed Dax Swanson to the practice squad and released defensive lineman Cam Henderson.
