The New York Jets are set to add another fullback in Fui Vakapuna, a product of BYU. Fui Vakapuna was drafted in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. He was most recently a member of the Indianapolis Colts. Vakapuna joins John Conner and h-back/tight end Josh Baker at the fullback position.
Fui Vakapuna will sign with the New York Jets today, filling one of the roster spots opened up when Eddie Jones and DeAngelo Smith were cut. Vakapuna will add another body to the fullback competition, which is one of the most interesting position battles on the team.
