I guess he gave up on getting a ring this year.

He was a good player, however. A team guy on a me team.

I'll always remember him for playing CB and WR in the same year. And being successful at both.

I will always remember him being good at playing CB when the Pats were in need, plus playing WR and special teams.

He was an ultimate team player, and will always have my respect...even if he was a Patriot.

He was a system player. Who are you kidding if you think this guy had any type of talent. His flaws were disguised by the coaching schemes and play calling. He was slow, he was dumb, he was never in the top of any type of any category, did I mentioned he sucked and played for Beli-profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilter? If you are a WR and you don't have any typ of concept of what you are going against, your main predator....a DB and you cannot play thier position just as well as you play yours you are worhtless IMO. How can you be a WR and not know the nuances of your opposition. Alot of the WR's in the league can play CB and can look a hell of alot better than what that scrub did when he got his chance. Buenos noches brotha!
