The New England Patriots released offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger and defensive lineman Mike Wright on Wednesday.

Wright, who originally joined New England as rookie free agent out of Cincinnati in 2005, recorded 174 tackles and 15.0 sacks in 81 career games with the squad. He played in the 2011 season opener at Miami and had a tackle and sack before missing the rest of the year due to a concussion.

Ohrnberger missed the entire 2011 season due to a concussion and appeared in just five games over his three-year career with New England.
