The Brockton Enterprise posted a great piece on Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski on SundayÂ who told the newspaper that he’s looking forward to working withÂ the newly drafted Zoltan Mesko.Â Mesko appears poised toÂ have the opportunity ofÂ taking over the punting duties for Chris Hansen, who is a free agent and wasn’t brought back by New England.
â€śIâ€™ve heard a lot of good things about Zoltan,” Gostkowski told the newspaper.Â ”I met him once and he seems like a nice guy. Iâ€™m looking forward to getting to work with him.”
Gowstkowski was a restricted free agent this offseason but was signedÂ with a second roundÂ tender of $1.75 million.
â€śItâ€™s good,â€ť said Gostkowski on his new contract. â€śThatâ€™s the way the rules were and I got tendered and I was happy it was by the Patriots.
Â â€ś(Iâ€™m) glad to be back. This is the place where I want to be and Iâ€™m just glad to get another opportunity to be on the team.â€ť
Gostkowski was drafted in the fourth round back in 2006 and has totaled 513 points along with a Pro Bowl appearance during his four seasons in New England.
