After two disappointing years with the Saints, the safety has caught on in New England.

The New England Patriots have signed Saints safety Vinnie Sunseri, the team announced yesterday.

You’ll remember Sunseri was the Saints fifth round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, not 2015 as the official Patriots website seems to think. In fact, Sunseri spent his entire 2015 season on injured reserve after playing 9 games in 2014. He had 5 combined tackles that season, not 1 as the Patriots official website reports.

Despite all the factual errors on the Patriots website you know what this signing means: Sunseri will soon become a Pro Bowl starting safety for the Pats. Just kidding. I think.
