The New England Patriots are known for using their defensive players on offense. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels likes to take advantage of LBs Mike Vrabel and Junior Seau's athleticism, especially on the goal line. Vrabel and Seau will line up in the backfield as the full back and tail back at times or even on the line of scrimmage as tight ends. In fact, Vrabel has eight receptions all for touchdowns throughout his career, including two this season.
