At least one Patriots player can’t make sense of Bill Belichick’s decision to trade linebacker Jamie Collins.
Patriots safety Devin McCourty said today that he couldn’t believe it when he learned that Collins had been traded to the Browns.
“Jamie is arguably our best defensive player,” McCourty told CSNNE.com. “When you get a guy like Jamie who was here for four years on the team, a very productive player, to lose him is a bit shocking to everybody on the team.”
Belichick has a good track record for knowing when it’s time to bid farewell to a veteran player. But that doesn’t mean the other players in the locker room have to like it.
