If you are now the all-time leading scorer in the NFL and Belichick just let you go to free agency without much of a fight, then surely that's a ticket to being a player Belichick let go too soon. Seriously, you can't leave the Patriots organization and start another 14 years in the league without automatically joining the club. Here is the case for Adam Vinatieri.
It's only fair that a former first round pick with 7 Pro Bowls, 2 of which came after he was traded, would be a popular candidate for a guy Belichick let go too soon. Was the unexpected September 2009 trade of Richard Seymour a case of letting a guy go too soon?
It is said that Bill Belichick would rather get rid of a guy a year too early than a year too late. I was going to write a post about this, but that really can't be done. Instead, it's going to be several posts. Here's the first.
We all know that Bill Belichick has a certain affinity for the United States Service Academies. Since President Trump reversed a Defense Department rule which required athletes from the service academies to fulfill their active-duty requirement before pursuing a professional sports career last summer, and the Air Force Academy had a pretty solid senior kicker, I think you know where I'm going.
