Wiggins let go

]()

            The East Boston native played 16 games last season, with six starts. After catching 14 passes for 133 yards and four touchdowns in the regular season, Wiggins came up big in the postseason. In three playoff games, he had 14 more catches, including 10 for 68 yards in the blizzard game against Oakland.  

Wiggins joined the Patriots off waivers from the Jets on Nov. 28 of the 2000 season. In just four games he had 16 catches for 203 yards and a touchdown

With Wiggins out, the team is down to five tight ends. Veteran free agent Christian Fauria and first-round draft pick Daniel Graham should be locks for the roster. Also competing for jobs will be free agent addition Cam Cleeland and 2000 draft picks Jabari Holloway and Arther Love.

Notes

Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady will be part of another elite group soon. The Patriots quarterback is among People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" list, which will come out in a special edition of the magazine later this month. Brady is one of four athletes on the list, joining women's bobsledder Vonetta Flowers, speed-skater Apolo Anton Ohno and New York Yankees centerfielder Bernie Williams… Former Patriots wide receiver Curtis Jackson was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs.

The crowded field at tight end got a bit thinner when Jermaine Wiggins was waived Thursday afternoon.
