Date:

Falcons declared FB Lousaka Polite, QB Dominique Davis, CB Chris Owens, RB Antone Smith, OT Lamar Holmes, TE Michael Palmer and DE Jonathan Massaquoi inactive for Week 4 versus the Panthers.

Jason Snelling will take over lead-blocking duties with Polite out. It remains a good matchup for Michael Turner.

Falcons signed FB Lousaka Polite and TE Chase Coffman.

Polite will compete with Mike Cox for lead-blocking duties after fifth-round rookie Bradie Ewing was lost for the season on Friday. An on-again, off-again starter for the Dolphins from 2008-10, Polite played just 24 snaps for the Patriots in 2011. A third-round pick of the Bengals in 2009, Coffman has appeared in just six career games, all of which came in 2010.

Patriots released FB Lousaka Polite.

The writing was on the wall for the 30-year-old after New England came to terms with Tony Fiammetta earlier today, after also signing Spencer Larsen. Polite was a late season addition for New England in 2011, playing only 24 snaps.

Patriots signed FB Lousaka Polite.

Donald Thomas, who had been playing fullback in some packages, will be needed at guard with Logan Mankins (MCL sprain) out for the season finale. The Pats don't use a lead-blocker on most plays, so Polite's role will be limited.
Tue, Dec 27, 2011 01:30:00 PM

The Patriots worked out free agent FBs Lousaka Polite and Charles Scott Tuesday.

New England also worked out free agent TE Jake O'Connell. The Patriots don't typically use a roster spot on a fullback, so this is likely a case of due diligence more than anything else. It probably doesn't hurt that Polite spent the past three seasons with division rival Miami.

Dolphins FB Lousaka Polite has converted all twenty of his third-and-1 and fourth-and-1 carries between 2009 and 2010.

Polite's presence has opened up the short-yardage offense for Miami, who also has third-down threats Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess. The Dolphins still give the ball to Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams on the opposing one-yard line, so there's no fantasy impact here.
Sun, Oct 3, 2010 09:36:00 AM

Dolphins signed FB Lousaka Polite to a three-year contract extension.

Polite was scheduled to make $620,000 entering the final year of his current deal after signing with the Dolphins in October of last season. A true blocking back, Polite played in 11 games, starting five, and finished with 23 carries for 85 yards.
Sat, May 16, 2009 11:56:00 AM

Dolphins signed FB Lousaka Polite, formerly of the Bears.

Miami VP of football operations Bill Parcells knows Polite well from their time together in Dallas. He can lead block some and play special teams.
Thu, Oct 16, 2008 12:59:00 PM

Bears informed FB Lousaka Polite of his release.

Polite doesn't do much on offense well, which kept him behind Jason McKie. If the Bears could admit that Garrett Wolfe isn't an NFL running back, Polite likely would've been on the club and been a special teams upgrade.
Fri, Aug 29, 2008 01:57:00 PM

Bears signed FB Lousaka Polite.

The former Cowboy will back up Jason McKie at fullback, at least until Obafemi Ayanbadejo is off suspension.
Tue, Sep 4, 2007 05:56:00 PM

Cowboys released FB Lousaka Polite, LB Junior Glymph, C Matt Tarullo, WR Mike Jefferson, WR Damarius Bilbo, CB Joey Thomas, RB Alonzo Coleman, RB Arliss Beach, CB Quincy Butler, TE Rodney Hannah, LB Blair Phillips, G Trey Darilek, NT Remi Ayodele, DE Marcus Smith, QB Matt Moore, QB Richard Bartel, TE Adam Bergen, LB John Saldi, LB Khari Long and WR Jerheme Urban.

Aaron Glenn was the only big surprise in Dallas. Isiah Stanbeck made the team at receiver.
Sat, Sep 1, 2007 06:50:00 PM

Cowboys re-signed exclusive rights free agent FB Lousaka Polite.

The Pittsburgh grad was on and off the team last season. It's uncertain how much use the new coaching staff will have for a fullback.
Thu, Apr 26, 2007 03:49:00 PM

Cowboys re-signed FB Lousaka Polite and placed LB Greg Ellis on injured reserve with torn Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

Polite is a Bill Parcells favorite but has bounced back and forth between the roster and the street because he's not as good a lead blocker as Oliver Hoyte. Ellis will have a long road back from Achilles surgery.
Thu, Nov 16, 2006 07:03:00 PM

Cowboys waived FB Lousaka Polite.

Polite re-signed with the team last week and played Sunday, but his latest stay was a short one. Dallas has an open spot on the 53-man roster following the move.
