Patriots sign Zoltan Mesko, punter of the future

The first NFL contract in history with the name Zoltan on it was signed Wednesday.

Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports punter Zoltan Mesko agreed to a four-year deal that includes a signing bonus of more than $187,000.  (And presumably less than $188,000 or they would have said so.)

Mesko owns the only roster spot on the Patriots for a punter, so he should be an immediate starter.

    Zoltan Mesko — Wasn’t that the name of the arcade fortune teller machine in “Big?”

    Don’t mess with the Zoltan…
    I hope he doesn’t see the field more than twice a game as the new and improved Patriots offense strolls down the field.

    Now he should petition the NFL to be able to put his first name on his jersey nameplate a la Ichiro in the MLB.

    So is Florio’s next book going to be based on this guy?

    “Zoltan and Hernandez two steals”?
    Sounds more like two thieves to me.
