FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots continued to shuffle the deck on Wednesday, making two more minor roster moves.

The team announced it had signed rookie offensive lineman Josh Kline to the practice squad and released second-year linebacker Jeff Tarpinian to make room.

Kline, undrafted out of Kent State, had been released from the team's roster Sept. 2 after spending training camp with the team. He plays both tackle and guard.

Tarpinian shifted back and forth between the team's 53-man roster and its practice squad the last two seasons before getting cut out of training camp again this year. He was signed to the team's practice squad on Sunday before being released on Wednesday.

The Patriots have three offensive linemen on its practice squad, including Kline and tackles R.J. Dill and Jordan Devey. They join linebacker Ja'Gared Davis, safety Kanorris Davis, defensive lineman Marcus Forston, defensive back Justin Green, and wide receiver Quentin Sims.
