The New England Patriots have officially decided what to do with center Bryan Stork: they have released him.
Thus ends the saga where Stork has been released, traded, retired, unretired, sent back to the Patriots, and ultimately released again. Stork has been battling head injuries over the past few seasons, so hopefully he lands with a team that can ensure his safety and well-being moving forward.
The Patriots did not waive Stork with an injury distinction, so he will not be placed on the Patriots injured reserve.
Fellow Florida State graduate guard Tre Jackson has been placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list as he has not been able to practice all offseason. He is working on his conditioning as he tries to strengthen his knees and will be eligible to return in week 7.
The Patriots also officially announced the release of defensive tackle Terrance Knighton.
New England is now down to 80 players and the team must release five more by 4 PM EST on August 30th.
