Leon Washington back with Patriots

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 yesterday.

Defensive lineman A.J. Francis was released, while they signed offensive lineman Braxston Cave to the practice squad.

The 30-year-old Washington 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.
