Pats terminate Waters' contract

April, 30, 2013
The Patriots have officially terminated the contract of guard Brian Waters, who was placed on the reserve/did not report list prior to the 2012 regular season.

Waters, signed by the team just days before the 2011 regular season, is now a free agent and can sign with any team if he chooses to continue his career.

The 36-year-old played at a high level for the Patriots during his one season on the field with the team, but did not show up for any of the OTAs last offseason and was excused from the team's mandatory minicamp.

With Waters deciding not to report, the team moved Dan Connolly from center to right guard, and Ryan Wendell stepped in to anchor the center position.
Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
