The New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles came together to work out a trade on Tuesday but the trade will not be going through as originally announced.
According to a report from National Football League insider Adam Schefter, despite the fact that it was initially reported the Patriots would be sending offensive lineman Josh Kline to the Eagles, he is no longer a part of that deal.
What that means is the Patriots will still receive cornerback Eric Rowe from Philadelphia and Philadelphia will receive the same fourth round draft pick that was initially reported, only now they will be left with an open roster spot.
It's unclear why this change came about, but it seems like that Kline will be cut from the Patriots roster and the Eagles will look elsewhere to fill the empty spot on their roster.
