Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe reports that the Patriots have agreed to terms with fullback Tony Fiammetta, formerly of the Cowboys.
Fiammetta, 25, made an appearance on our recent intriguing free-agent fliers article. He is a bone-crushing lead blocker when healthy, although a mysterious inner-ear problem that caused nausea and dizziness held Fiammetta out of the lineup for longer than anticipated in Dallas last season.
The medical concern may have hurt Fiammetta’s stock as a free agent.
Fiammetta becomes the fourth fullback on New England’s roster, joining Spencer Larsen, Lousaka Polite, and Eric Kettani.
