The Patriots have released quarterback Jonathan Crompton, according to a league source. Crompton, a 6-foot-4, 228-pounder who was signed to the Patriots practice squad last November, has not taken a snap in a game for New England. A fifth-round pick of the Chargers in 2010 out of Tennessee, he threw for 2,800 yards and 27 touchdowns as a senior with the Vols.
