Because he deserves his own thread.

There are players who have been on this team over the last 20 years who embody the Patriot Way more than most. These aren't the superstars, but they are the soldiers you want next to you in battle.

Troy Brown was the original, Kevin Faulk stepped in, and then came Jules (James White is the dude now).

Jules didn't drop the catch in crunch time, he made the catch we'll be talking about for the next generation, His playoff stats alone tell the story, he was CLUTCH.

He wasn't the biggest, strongest of the fastest guy, but if you could find 22 players with his attitude, you'd win the Super Bowl every damn year.

I will shed a tear like I did for Edelman when Slater hangs it up.

God, what a terrible day that will be. There won't be a dry eye in the house. The heart and soul of the Patriots for so many years now.

Great stuff from Jules. Really lovely words from him about Matt Slater. Really treasures the time with him.

He was asked if he’ll be at the stadium for the Bucs game. He doesn’t have plans to. A reporter asked him who he‘ll be rooting for 🙄 he said the Pats of course. Another stupid reporter asked the same question saying he is such friends with Brady etc so who will he be supporting. He got annoyed with the question…..”I just answered that…..I’m Foxboro, man”.

Fantastic presser. Really.

great words about Bill and how appreciative he was of him.

And he signed off thanking the reporters for their work while he was a player and how he appreciates them all.

He’s a class act.
