The Pats recently agreed to terms with three veteran free agents: tight-end Marcus Pollard, punter Scott Player, and d-lineman Kenny Smith.
Pollard is 36, and a 13 year veteran of the League. He spent 10 of those years with the Colts, where he put up his best numbers. Last year, he caught 28 passes for 273 yards, which is a decent average. With Watson and David Thomas ahead of him, Pollard will be more of a 3rd tight-end who may be a secret weapon near the goal line.
Fun fact: Pollard is the active leader for 2 point conversions with 5. He's two behind Marshall Faulk for #1 all-time.
Scott Player may not be a household name, but he is a household face. He's this guy:
Single facemask bar, and a Hulk Hogan style bleach-blond Fu Manchu. Gotta respect that.
