Reno, NV (MyNews4.com) -- After being picked up by the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent, former Nevada Tight End, Zach Sudfeld has found himself without a job. The Patriots released Sudfeld on Thursday and signed former Indianapolis Colts Wide Receiver, Austin Collie.
During preseason, Sudfeld created a lot of buzz with his size, blocking skills and intelligence. He had a great opportunity to shine at the tight end position with both Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski out, but he didn't record a single catch in the regular season.
If he clears waivers, he will likely sign to the New England's practice squad.
Last year at Nevada, Sudfeld was an All-Conference selection, catching 45 passes for 598 yards and eight touchdowns.
