Patriots add some special teams help

The New England Patriots have added some proven special teams help.

The club announced that it has added veteran linebacker Niko Koutouvides, who spent the last two seasons as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A former standout at Purdue, Koutouvides was a fourth-round draft pick by the Seattle Seahawks in 2004. He spent four seasons there before heading to Denver for a season. He’s only started two games in his long career but he has recorded 101 special teams tackles in 103 games.
