BOSTON (CBS) – Tiquan Underwood has been released by the Patriots, again.
The team has informed the receiver of his release, Underwood’s agent confirmed to ESPNBoston’s Mike Reiss on Thursday.
Underwood made headlines the night before Super Bowl XLVI when he was released by the team that night. He was also the receiver that prompted Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien’s shouting match on the sideline during the team’s 34-27 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 14.

He may be best known for his flattop haircut though.
The Patriots had an abundance of receivers after an off-season binge that saw Brandon Llyod, Donte Stallworth, Anthony Gonzalez, Britt Davis and seventh-rough draft pick Jeremy Ebert all brought aboard. They join an already crowded crop with Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Chad Ochcocinco and Julien Edelman.
The Patriots also signed Jabar Gaffney to a two-year deal on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old Underwood had three receptions and 30 yards in six games for the Patriots in 2011.
