The New England Patriots have parted ways with quarterback Mike Kafka, releasing him just months after signing him to a futures contract.

The Patriots also announced the release of rookie defensive lineman Dewayne Cherrington, an undrafted free agent from Mississippi State.

Kafka, 25, was originally a fourth-round draft pick (122nd overall) by the Philadelphia Eagles out of Northwestern in 2011. He played in four games as a rookie, completing 11 of 16 passes for 107 yards.

Kafka was released by Philadelphia on Aug. 31, 2012, and spent the season out of football. He signed with New England in January.
