We’re onto 2018.”
“Not the outcome we wanted, but proud to play for you, #PatriotsNation. Thanks for your support all season long,” a caption next to a photo posted by on the Patriots Instagram read.
“I’m Thankful that I was apart of something special, 2017 was still one Hell of A Year! I’m honored that Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick traded for me and allowed me to earn an opportunity to compete and be apart of the Patriot Family and I am Forever Grateful,” Patriots linebacker Marquis Flower wrote.
“Still blessed and highly favored! We didn’t play good enough to win, congrats Eagles,” Patriots linebacker James Harrison wrote.
