Pats adjust roster for opening game

The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots re-signed running back-kick returner Leon Washington and signed offensive lineman Josh Kline to the 53-man roster from the practice squad Saturday.

Released was defensive lineman A.J. Francis.

Also, the team signed offensive lineman Braxston Cave to the practice squad.

Washington, 30, was signed by the Patriots as a free agent in March after he left Seattle, where he was a key contributor on special teams.

A seven-year veteran, Washington shares the NFL record with Josh Cribbs with eight career kickoff returns for touchdowns.

He also tied an NFL record when he returned two kicks for a touchdown against San Diego in 2010.

Washington made the Pro Bowl in 2008 and 2012.
