The Patriots released DL Eric Moore on Tuesday.
Moore was brought back to the team on Dec. 10 and played in each of the last two games. He finished last season with the Patriots, starting three games and recording two sacks.
Moore spent this past training camp with the Patriots before being released on Sept. 3. He played in the UFL in 2010 before coming to New England.
The Patriots earlier placed Andre Carter on injured reserve, meaning the team has two roster spots available.
