Kline in, Tarpinian out on practice squad

September, 4, 2013
The Patriots announced a change on their practice squad on Wednesday, with rookie guard Josh Kline re-signed and linebacker Jeff Tarpinian released.

Kline had been kept on the team's initial 53-man roster on Saturday before being waived. One of the Patriots' goals has been to build some depth along the offensive line, which led to claiming rookie interior linemen Braxston Cave (Browns) and Chris Barker (Dolphins) on waivers Sunday.

With Cave and Barker landing on the 53-man roster, it ultimately pushed Kline to the practice squad for now.

The Patriots currently have nine offensive linemen on their 53-man roster and three on the practice squad.
