Training camp thrives on competition, both between offense and defense as well as between players of the same position.
With the signing of seven-year veteran linebacker Niko Koutouvides, special-teams focused players like Tracy White, Marques Murrell and Jeff Tarpinian have some new competition.
Koutouvides (6-2/238), played the last two years for the Tampa Bay Bucs, after spending time with the Seahawks and Broncos in the past. Scott O’Brien, Patriots special-teams coach, was with the Broncos during Koutouvides’ tenure there.
The former Purdue player and 4th round draft pick totaled 30 tackles during his last two seasons with the Bucs.
