New England releases DT Traylor

FOXBORO, Mass. (May 4, 2005) -- The New England Patriots released nose tackle Keith Traylor, giving last year's first-round draft pick Vince Wilfork a chance for more playing time.

Traylor started 10 regular-season games in his only year with the Patriots. He was a restricted free agent when he signed with them on March 31, 2004.

Traylor, 35, had spent the previous three seasons with the Chicago Bears. In 13 NFL seasons, he's been with six teams after being drafted by Denver in the third round in 1991 as a linebacker.
