News Blitz 9/7: Patriots name captains

The Patriots can't seem to pull off a conventional trade lately. A couple of weeks ago they sent center Bryan Stork to Washington for a conditional seventh-round pick but that move was quickly voided when Stork failed his physical with the Redskins and was returned to New England. The Patriots released Stork shortly thereafter.

The latest strange turn of events happened Tuesday when it appeared that the Patriots sent Josh Kline and a conditional 2018 draft pick to the Eagles for defensive back Eric Rowe. Later in the day, however, reports surfaced that Kline would not be part of the deal and was still property of the Patriots.

So, New England gets Rowe for a fourth-round pick in 2018 while Kline was ultimately released by the Patriots. ESPN Boston.com has the news as well as what the Patriots can expect from Rowe.

The Patriots named their captains for the 2016 season and had a pair of newcomers in the mix. Meanwhile, Danny Amendola, fresh off PUP, pronounced himself fit to play against the Cardinals.

ESPNBoston.com also noticed the media throng around Bishop Sankey on Tuesday, something not usually seen with a member of the practice squad. MassLive.com chats with another practice squad member, Devin Street, who is happy to be with the Patriots.
