Linebacker Kyle Van Noy has been released by the New England Patriots. This will be the second time the Patriots will part ways with Van Noy. His release will free up $5 million in cap space immediately, and make him a free agent.
ESPN’s Field Yates reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

A decision with salary cap roots, as moving on from the versatile Van Noy creates just under $5M in cap space.
Van Noy can sign with another team right away.

Van Noy was originally drafted by the Detroit Lions in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. After playing for three seasons in Detroit, he was traded to the Patriots for a sixth round pick. He spent four seasons in New England during his first stint there, winning two Super Bowls.
He, then, signed with the Miami Dolphins, playing for one year there before being released and returning to the Patriots on a two-year deal. The 30-year-old linebacker will become a free agent again, free to sign with any team he chooses.
