Playful Pat on the back, eh!

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It didn't take Nick Kaczur's teammates long to pick up on his Canadian roots.

For the past three years, he has taken his lumps from his fellow Patriots.

"When we found out he was Canadian, we had to change the playbook so he could understand it," fellow offensive tackle Matt Light said, tongue partially in cheek.

"Any time anything bad has happened, we blame it on Nick because he's Canadian."

On a roll, Light didn't stop, poking fun at Kaczur's deep, gravelly voice.

"I think his voice is probably the most unique aspect of Nick," Light said. "I think he was actually mute for about six years. I think they do that in Canada."

Kaczur chuckled at the shenanigans, something he grew accustomed long ago.

"They ride me a lot," Kaczur said. "Most of what they say isn't something you could print, though."
