Rookie FA receiver Stanford has short stay with Pats


The New England Patriots announced Saturday they released rookie wide receiver Cole Stanford after just a handful of days in working with the team at training camp.

Stanford, 23, was signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent from Cal Poly last weekend. He originally played linebacker and converted to offense after his freshman season at Cal Poly.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder rushed 54 times for 314 yards and one touchdown and caught 43 passes for 891 yards and eight touchdowns over 42 games during his college career.
