News broke, earlier today, that third year center Bryan Stork was set to be cut by the New England Patriots, as they work to whittle their roster down from 90 to 75 players. 

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, however, says that the team has instead decided to trade the injury-plagued lineman to the Washington Redskins for a conditional draft pick.

Though Andrews had been receiving the majority of the reps in preseason action thus far, the belief was that Stork would stick around at least as the backup.

It appears consistent concussion issues, including another suffered earlier this preseason, and a sometimes testy attitude that lead to more than one unnecessary penalties on the field have spelled the end of his Patriot career.

Stork's inability to stay on the field, due to concussions, opened the door for the undrafted Andrews last season and the Georgia product played well in his first professional opportunity. Even when Stork returned to the team, mid-season, Andrews retained the majority of the playing time a the center spot, while Stork was moved around the line.

The starting center for the 2014 Super Bowl champion team, Stork's career started out well in New England, but will need to be resurrected in Washington.
