      Running Back
      New England Patriots

      Corey Dillon's request to be released by the New England Patriots should be granted by midnight Thursday.
      The Patriots are expected to release the veteran running back before free agency begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, the Boston Herald reported Thursday. Dillon, the club record-holder for rushing yards in a season, then would be free to negotiate with any team.
      The Patriots will save more than $2 million by releasing him now. Dillon would count $4.4 million against the salary cap if the Patriots retain him.
      Dillon, 32, rushed for 812 yards and a career-high 13 touchdowns in 2006. Though he has hinted at retirement, Dillon said he would consider playing elsewhere as the featured back -- a role he lost in New England after the emergence of Laurence Maroney.

      It's all mind over matter, I don't mind and you don't matter.
