For the rest of the week leading up to the Super Bowl, we’ll profile one player a day, each of whom has history with your Dallas Cowboys--and each of whom will appear in the big game either as a member of the Patriots or the Giants. In the second of our four-part series, we look at Lousaka Polite, fullback for the New England Patriots.
The Cowboys Years: Polite was picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Cowboys in 2004. He spent three seasons with the team, appearing in 27 games in this span while mostly serving as a blocking specialist. All told, he had nine carries and ten receptions with Dallas, and even brought down a receiving touchdown in 2005.
Since The Cowboys: After being released by Dallas after the 2007 season, Polite signed with Chicago, where he spent 2007, contributing almost exclusively on special teams. He signed with Miami in 2008, where he stayed until September of last year when he was released.
Polite was picked up by the Patriots last December, and since, has returned to a role similar to that with Chicago--that is, mostly limited to special teams. He does have one carry this postseason, which went for for three yards, against the Broncos three weeks ago.
