The Washington Redskins on Wednesday landed veteran center Bryan Stork in a trade with the New England Patriots for an undisclosed draft pick.

Stork, 25, has appeared in 21 regular season games over the course of his first two NFL seasons along with 17 starts.

The Florida State product's first NFL regular season appearance came against the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 14, 2014. Two weeks later, he received his first career start against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

He would go on to start the final nine regular season games that year along with two of New England's three playoff games.

In a victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, Stork helped lead the Patriots to nearly 400 total yards along with giving Tom Brady enough time to throw four touchdown passes.

Stork started the 2015 season on Injured Reserve/designated to return before making his season debut against the Redskins on Nov. 8, where he played four different positions during the game including right tackle.

He would finish the season with six starts (five at center, one at right tackle) before starting both of New England's playoff games.

Stork joins a Washington offense that already has Kory Lichtensteiger and Austin Reiter at the center position. Spencer Long and Josh LeRibeus have also alternated reps between the guard and center over the last few months.

Lichtensteiger moved to center prior to the 2014 regular season and has started all 22 of his appearances over the last two years.

LeRibeus filled in for Lichtensteiger last season while he was injured.

Stork started 40 games during his time at Florida State, helping leading the Seminoles to a perfect 14-0 record along with a victory in the 2013 BCS National Championship game, playing every snap in a 34-31 comeback victory.

He was selected consensus All-American and first-team All-ACC that season while earning the Rimington Trophy, given annually to the nation's top center, while also being announced as one of five semifinalists for the Outland Trophy.
