Bethel was released by the Patriots on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

This moves comes as somewhat of a surprise given that Bethel was a core special teamer over the past three seasons with New England, accumulating 32 tackles over 882 special-teams snaps played during this span. Nevertheless, the 32-year-old is now free to join up with a new team heading into the 2022 campaign.
