Bryan Stork announced Saturday night that he’s “looking forward” to joining the Redskins and making great memories in Washington.
After Friday’s game, Redskins HC Jay Gruden told reporters that C Bryan Stork will “supposedly” report for work tomorrow, but has yet to make a “final decision.”
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported a few days ago Stork would be reporting to the Redskins allowing the recent trade with the Patriots that sent a 2017 conditional seventh-round pick to New England.
However, it appears as though it’s not exactly a done deal.
Stork had a pretty crazy day on Wednesday, as reports first surfaced that he was being waived by the Patriots. However, the Patriots wound up trading him to the Redskins.
Shortly after the trade was announced, reports surfaced that retirement was a possibility for Stork, so there has been some question whether he would ever play for the Redskins.
In regards to how the trade went down, Jeff Howe reported that Redskins GM Scot McCloughan checked the transaction wire, but noticed nothing was official, so he called Patriots executive Nick Caserio about a trade.
Stork, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2014. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.697 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $600,00 for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Stork appeared in eight games for the Patriots. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 21 center out of 39 qualifying players last year.
