    Re: Pats worked out Koutouvides

    He's actually from New England (New Britain CT). A career backup that would be primarily, if not exclusively a special teams player. Maybe BB is hoping to find the next Larry Izzo.

    Here's a link with info on him for the Tampa Bay fan site/message board:

    Re: Pats worked out Koutouvides

    He's a fearless hitter, was always light for LB, but threw his body around the field with reckless abandon in college.

    He WAS actually drafted by Seattle.

    Sounds like competition for Tracy White.

    Re: Pats sign Niko Koutouvides

    The guy is an excellent special teams player. Belichick may not have been too pleased by some of the play by other backups on ST Thursday. Similar to current players like White and Slater or former players like Izzo, it is unlikely he would ever get on the field on a 1st, 2nd or 3rd down in any game other than in preseason.

    Only in New England is competition brought in for a special teamer that was traded for a year earlier.

    Re: Pats sign Niko Koutouvides

    There is a tradition under Belichick of veteran special teamers making the squad over young developing back-up's. The Patriots have never won a Super Bowl without Je'Rod Cherry, right?

    I'd be surprised to see Koutovides make the team, given the depth, but he could certainly chase Tracy White for a spot as the ST LB'er, in the Eric Alexander/Larry Izzo role.
