PHOTO: Kyle Van Noy Bids Farewell To New England Following Release

In one of the first major moves of the offseason, the New England Patriots released linebacker Kyle Van Noy on Monday.

The decision to cut Van Noy cleared roughly $4 million in salary cap space.

On Wednesday, Van Noy took to his social media accounts to voice his appreciation for New England, tweeting a farewell message and sharing a photo of his son with a second message on Instagram.

Teammates Devin McCourty and Davon Godchaux reacted to the news.

Back in 2016, Van Noy joined the Patriots for the first time following a trade with the Detroit Lions and helped the team reach three straight Super Bowls, winning two.
