KENT STATE'S JOSH KLINE SIGNS PRIORITY FREE AGENT CONTRACT WITH NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Kent State offensive guard Josh Kline signed with the New England Patriots just hours after the 2013 Draft ended as a “priority free agent,” according to a text message received from Kline Saturday night.
Kline, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound lineman from Mason, Ohio, earned Second Team All-Mid-American Conference honors as a senior last season after helping pave the way for a pair of 1,000-yard rushers in Dri Archer and Trayion Durham.
Kline impressed scouts during Kent State’s Pro Day and was considered a possible late-round draft choice, but was not taken. He was a four-year letterman and three-year starter for the Golden Flashes.
