    Stephen Gostkowski: Let go by Patriots

    The Patriots will release Stephen Gostkowski (hip), Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.When healthy, Gostkowski was entrenched as the Patriots' kicker since he was selected in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft.

    Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski: Heading to injured reserve

    The New England Patriots will place Stephen Gostkowski on injured reserve Wednesday due to an unspecified issue, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.Gostkowski's absence from practice Wednesday hinted that something was amiss, but the veteran kicker's move to IR still comes as a surprise. More details surrounding the injury should unfold soon, but the transaction means that he'll miss at least the next eight weeks. The injury may have contributed to Gostkowski's uncharacteristic lack of accuracy this season, as the 35-year-old has misfired on four of his 15 extra-point tries. The Patriots should add a replacement for Gostkowski to the 53-man roster in short order, and that kicker will immediately make for an intriguing fantasy pickup in light of the favorable team context.

    Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski: Staying with Patriots

    Stephen Gostkowski is signing a two-year contract to stay with the New England Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.While he reportedly drew some interest from San Francisco, the 35-year-old was always most likely to stay in New England for a 14th season with the Patriots.

Gostkowski is working on a streak of eight consecutive seasons with at least 27 successful field goals and 44 extra points, making him the most reliable option at an unpredictable position.
