CB Cole re-signed; OL Kline waived

The New England Patriots continue to tweak their 53-man roster, announcing today that veteran cornerback Marquice Cole has been re-signed and undrafted rookie guard Josh Kline has been waived.

If Kline clears waivers, he would be a top candidate to fill one of the team's remaining two open spots on the practice squad. With the Patriots claiming rookie interior offensive linemen Chris Barker and Braxston Cave on waivers Sunday, that likely sparked the move with Kline.

Cole provides important depth in the secondary, primarily at cornerback, but he's also worked at safety at times. He's also a top special teams player.
