Patriots re-sign LB/SpT Koutouvides

Though the Patriots have yet to make a splashy move in free agency (free agency opened about four hours ago, so not to worry just yet), they did apparently re-sign one of their own free agents: linebacker/special teamer Niko Koutouvides.

According to NFLPA records, Koutouvides is on the books for $825,000 in base salary for 2012.

Since the NFLPA website is not updated instantly, it’s likely Koutouvides’ deal was done within the last day or two.

The 28-year old Purdue product had 8 tackles on defense and 9 special-teams tackles in eight regular-season games, plus one tackle, one quarterback hit and one special-teams tackle in the postseason.
