Housler was released by the Patriots on Wednesday after failing a physical, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

According to Reiss, Housler pulled a hamstring during OTAs. His release leaves only James O'Shaughnessy and Matthew Lengel to square off for the No. 3 tight end job behind Rob Gronkowski and offseason pickup Dwayne Allen. However, once Housler returns to full strength, a return to New England isn't out of the question.
