Bill Belichick has done it again, people. He never ceases to make headlines with controversial cuts every single preseason.
Here's this year's shocker:
A stunner: Former starting center Bryan Stork is being released by the #Patriots today, I'm told. Crazy.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 24, 2016
Stork, who entered camp and the preseason with concussion concerns, recently returned to the field and was ejected by Belichick for fighting during a joint practice with the Chicago Bears last week. Now it appears that ejection is permanent, as this report suggests.
Stork was projected to be the team's starting center heading into the 2016 season, but now it looks like David Andrews will assume that role. Last week many believed Andrews, who was signed as a free agent following the 2015 NFL Draft, had the leg up on the starting job anyway because of Stork's injury/behavioral concerns.
Don't be shocked if Stork finds a new home quickly, as the Chicago Bears are actively looking for a new center.
