Patriots release Bowie

With the official announcement of former Georgia defensive tackle and first round selection Richard Seymour's signing, the Patriots also anounced the release of former Georgia fullback Larry Bowie.

Bowie, 28, was signed by New England as a free agent on Feb. 1. Since he came in, the team added Marc Edwards, who is expected to be the starter. The Patriots also moved second-year man and former Georgia tailback Patrick Pass to fullback and had Jeff Paulk on its roster.

Bowie signed with the Washington Redskins as a rookie free agent in 1996. He spent four seasons with the Redskins and gained 108 yards on 32 carries, but his career fell off track after he suffered a broken fibula in 1998. He played just two games in 1999 and was out of football in 2000.
