Bodden, who played at Duquesne University, signed as a free agent with the Patriots in 2009 after a stint with the Cleveland Browns. He saw his playing time reduced this season in favor of Kyle Arrington.
Bodden tied for the team lead with five interceptions in 2009, but missed all of last season with a shoulder injury. He returned this year and played in five of the first six games, collecting 16 total tackles.
The Patriots also announced they added defensive back Josh Victorian to the practice squad, while they released defensive back Malcolm Williams from the practice squad.
