Patriots Announce Release of Guard Josh Kline

Josh Kline

The Patriots have announced they have released 26-year-old guard Josh Kline, a player who was supposed to be involved in a deal that the Eagles made for DB Eric Rowe.

When the Eagles were not interested in Kline, the Pats instead sent a 2018 fourth-round to the Eagles to wrap up the deal.

Kline’s release comes less than a year after the Patriots gave him a two-year extension. Last November, the team inked Kline to a deal worth up to $4.9 million over two seasons, taking him through 2017. At the time, Kline was playing like the Patriots best interior offensive lineman.

Although a shoulder injury set him back after that, Kline started 13 of 14 regular season games in 2015. He entered this offseason in the hunt for a starting guard spot and as the Patriots’ backup center.
