Super Bowl 2012 News: Tiquan Underwood Tweets About Being Released From Patriots

Less than 24 hours before the New England Patriots were to take on the New York Giants in the 2012 Super Bowl, the Patriots made an interesting roster transaction by releasing wide receiver Tiquan Underwood to make room for defensive end Alex Silvestro.

Well, shortly after his release, Underwood took to Twitter to address his depressing news.

"This Is Nothing But MOTIVATION....," was Underwood's first response.

"I Been Thru A LOT...But There Are Ppl In This World w/ More Serious Problems So I Cant Hang The Head....Thank You Lord."

"Good Luck To The New Enland Organization, The Coaches, & All My Teammates...

"THANK YOU To Everyone Supporting/Wishing Me Well (Fam,Friends,Ppl Who Dont Kno Me Personally) To Those Happy About What Happen...God Bless U."

Good news for Underwood is that he will get a share of the Patriots Super Bowl winnings and get a ring if they're victorious.

Underwood, played in just six games for the Patriots this season. In those games, Underwood snagged three catches for 30 yards, including a 13-yard reception against the Denver Broncos in the Patriots' Divisional-round victory.
