Patriots release OL Kyle Hix
The move was announced Monday shortly before the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles met in the second preseason game for each.
Hix, signed as a rookie free agent out of Texas on July 27, 2011, spent all last season on injured reserve after hurting his shoulder during the preseason.
