Patriots release Scaife, Ingersoll

The Patriots have officially announced the release of Bo Scaife and Mike Ingersoll.

Scaife, a seven-year NFL vet, wasn't in New England long. The 31-year old free-agent tight end was signed June 7 and had just one OTA session and three days of mini-camp before getting released.

Ingersoll sits on the other end of the spectrum; the first-year player has yet to land comfortably in the NFL. The offensive lineman went to the Chiefs as a rookie free agent out of UNC. Kansas City released him after training camp and Ingersoll bounced to the Buccaneers practice squad in December.

New England's roster count is now at 88 (tight end Brad Herman, on IR, included).
