Plainville CT’s very own Niko Koutouvides has re-signed with the New England Patriots. Koutouvides, 31, has played for New England since 2011 despite being released twice in that time period and brought back.
Koutouvides has proven to be a key player on special teams and invaluable to the teams depth at linebacker.
He attended Purdue University and was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the 4th round of the 2004 NFL Draft. In addition to Seattle he has also played for Denver and Tampa Bay mostly as a special teams player.
