New England Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is a free man once again, ESPN Boston's Field Yates reports.
Dennard began serving a 60-day term for a 2012 assault on a police officer on March 1. He was eligible to be granted his release after 35 days (which, if you do the math, is precisely why he's out today).
Dennard was also sentenced to 100 hours of community service and an extra year of probation. He is expected to be available when the Patriots begin their offseason program. The third-year pro projects as a starter on the Patriots' defense.
