WASHINGTON — Center Bryan Stork’s emotional journey may be coming to a close.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reports Stork is no longer mulling retirement one day after being traded by the Patriots to the Redskins.
Stork’s status remained unclear late into Wednesday evening as reports swirled, some indicating his four documented concussions were the driving forced behind his retirement consideration.
A source, however, informed 106.7 The Fan’s Brian McNally they did not believe his concussion history was the primary factor, but rather that Stork was emotionally rattled after being informed New England was planning to release him. Stork was the Patriots’ fourth-round pick in 2014.
The trade became official at 5 p.m., with the Redskins giving the Patriots a conditional seventh-round pick, but a source told McNally the two sides were still “figuring it out.” That remained the case as of late last evening. According to Rapoport, that’s no longer the case.
Stork will report to Ashburn by this weekend.
