Offensive lineman Josh Kline is no longer a part of the trade in which the Patriots will acquire cornerback Eric Rowe.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday evening that Kline remains a Patriot for now and could be released.
Tuesday morning, the Eagles and Patriots had agreed to a deal that sent Rowe to the Patriots for Kline and a conditional 2018 fourth-round pick. The trade is still a go, but Kline is no longer a part of it.
Kline started 13 games at guard for the Patriots last season but was passed on the depth chart during the preseason.
