There was a moment earlier this week when New England Patriots offensive lineman Josh Kline thought he was going to the Philadelphia Eagles. Reports had him included as part of a trade for second-year defensive back Eric Rowe, but after several hours it was revealed that Kline wouldn’t be included in the deal.
Instead, the Patriots elected to release him and now he’ll most certainly be on the move, as he was claimed off waivers by the Tennessee Titans on Thursday.

Signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2013 NFL Draft, Kline spent three years with the Patiots, starting 18 games. The Kent State product can play both guard positions and the Titans will look for Kline to add depth to the interior offensive line.
The 26-year-old will have to pass a physical after offseason shoulder surgery, but he should be available to the Titans as they take on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon. Whether or not they choose to dress him will be another thing entirely.
