When the Vikings cut linebacker Vinny Ciurciu earlier this year, I was happy. Not because I don’t like Vinny Ciurciu, but because I hated having to look up the proper spelling of the guy’s name whenever I was hunt-and-pecking a post.
Well, C-I-U-R-C-I-U is back. The Pats announced today that they signed the Boston College product.
Other new arrivals are defensive lineman Steve Williams (Northwest Missouri St.), running back Omar Cuff (Delaware), receiver Robert Ortiz (San Diego State), receiver Tyree Barnes (Navy), running back Eric Kettani (Navy), punter Aaron Perez (UCLA), and receiver Shun White (Navy).
It’s worth noting that three of the new players attended the Naval Academy, where the father of Pats coach Bill Belichick coached for years.
And it’s ironic, to say the least, that the Pats have a wideout on the roster named “Tyree.”
Yeah, Pats fans, we need to show it again.
