Super Bowl 2012: Tiquan Underwood Released By New England Patriots

We're sorry, Tiquan Underwood, but you won't be heading to the Super Bowl. Sure, Underwood is in Indianapolis and has been practicing with the Patriots, but a mere 24 hours before the game, the Patriots have released the young wide receiver. So much for the Super Bowl experience.

The news comes from Shalice Young

The other shoe to drop in this situation is Chad Ochocinco. As Young notes, this move means Ochocinco will be active for the Super Bowl.

But dang, that's just rough for Underwood. So close, yet so far away.

At least he only had the Pats' logo shaved into his head, and not done as a tattoo.
