BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots have cut wide receiver Michael Jenkins, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Releasing Jenkins, who had been slowed in camp due to an injury, shows the Patriots are confident enough in moving forward with their crop of young receivers. He becomes the third veteran receiver signed by the Patriots this offseason to be released, joining Donald Jones and Lavelle Hawkins.

Jenkins, a nine-year vet, did not see action in New England’s preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles last week. He played the last two seasons for the Minnesota Vikings, catching 40 passes for 442 yards and two touchdowns in 2012, but was released this off-season for contractual reasons.

For his career, the 30-year-old Jenkins has 25 touchdowns and 354 receptions for 4,427 yards.

Tune in to Patriots-Buccaneers Friday night on 98.5 The Sports Hub — the flagship station of the New England Patriots. Pregame coverage begins at 5 p.m. and Bob Socci and Scott Zolak have the call at 8 p.m.!
