The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Monday they have signed fullback Dan Klecko to a two-year contract.
With the Eagles, Klecko will be moved to fullback on a full-time basis for the first time in his career.
"It has been something that I've done in the NFL all five years [of my career], so I think the transition will be easier than a lot of people think," said Klecko. "It's going to be a lot of hard work in changing my mentality to the offensive side of the ball, but we'll see how it goes from there. It's going to be an experiment for me too, so we'll see."
Klecko said the catch provided him with a sense of vindication after the Patriots had cut him in training camp.
"I love New England, it was a great time, but they did cut me. When I spiked the ball, there was a lot of emotion coming out, there really was."
