The Bryan Stork-saga has yet another twist.
Let's break this down chronologically:
»Before the move became official, the Washington Redskins jumped in and traded the Pats a conditional draft pick for Stork (likely because they feared he'd get claimed on the waiver wire by a team higher on the priority list).
»Before the trade became official, rumors flew that Stork -- who has dealt with concussion issues -- could retire instead of joining the Redskins.
»Stork did not retire.
Washington will get its conditional draft pick back.
Given that the Patriots planned to cut Stork before the trade -- he played only eight games last season and was not going to earn a starting job this year -- it's likely that he will finally be cut loose.
