Former Pitt receiver Devin Street released by New England Patriots

As quick as he came, he left again.

Former Pitt wide receiver Devin Street had another chance to impress an NFL team recently, but it didn't last long. The New England Patriots signed Street back in the beginning of May to give him a look, even using a waiver claim to secure his rights. But this week, they cut him again, releasing him on Wednesday. The Patriots reportedly waived him to make room for another receiver, Andrew Hawkins.

The Patriots have worked out Street before, signing him to their practice team prior to last season. But the Indianapolis Colts added him to their 53-man roster and that's where he played for 2016.

Street is still young enough that he can be a desirable receiver for teams looking for some experience. Unless he rejoins the Colts again, he could be playing for his third NFL team in three years this fall since he played for the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 and 2015.
