Two more players became former Patriots, as defensive lineman Chris Sullivan left New England for Pittsburgh and running back Lamont Warren was released by the team.
Sullivan, who was drafted by the Patriots in the fourth round of the 1996 draft, signed a deal with the Steelers over the weekend. He played four seasons in Foxboro after a standout career at Boston College. In 1999, Sullivan had 15 tackles and one sack as a backup.
Warren, who saw most of his action as a third-down back, was let go after one season with New England. The six-year veteran had 120 rushing yards on 35 carries and 29 receptions for 262 yards and a touchdown in 1999.
With the departures of Sullivan and Warren, New England has now parted with six veterans since the end of the season. Free agent wide receiver Shawn Jefferson signed with Atlanta, and tight end Ben Coates, tackle Bruce Armstrong and running back Terry Allen were all released by the team.
