I just wanted to say to all of our fans, THANK YOU! After a few days of reflection, I am so grateful and humbled by the unconditional support you have shown me the past two decades. Running out of that tunnel every week is a feeling that is hard to explain. I wish every season ended in a win, but that’s not the nature of sports (or life ). Nobody plays to lose. But the reward for working hard is just that, the work!! I have been blessed to find a career I love, teammates who go to battle with me, an organization that believes in me, and fans who have been behind us every step of the way. Every one of us that works at Gillette Stadium strived to do their best, spent themselves at a worthy cause, and prepared to fail while daring greatly (h/t Teddy Roosevelt ). And for that, we’ve been rewarded with something that the scoreboard won’t show - the satisfaction of knowing we gave everything to each other in pursuit of a common goal. That is what TEAM is all about. In both life and football, failure is inevitable. You dont always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again. And that’s right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove.
It’s too late to be scared.
2020, and still here. #LFG

When I was 4 years old I watched Joe play at Candlestick Park on Jan. 10, 1982 and saw “The Catch”, one of the greatest plays in football history. It feels surreal today to be on this list alongside my idol. I’m very honored and humbled. I’m sure there’s a kid out there somewhere who’s looking at this list, watching tape of me and Joe and making plans to knock both of us down a spot. That’s why football is the best.

Whether it’s 6am practice, or getting the kids off to school, I need to be ready to go first thing in the morning. That’s where @moleculesleep comes in.
Happy Birthday Benny! 10 years old and I couldn’t be any more blessed to be your Dad! We love you so much! This smile makes my day! 😍
My cleats, my causes! I’m always particular about my gameday cleats but this weeks are especially meaningful. @underarmour helped me with this custom pair featuring some of my favorite charities and foundations. Follow the link in my bio to place a bid on them, and PLEASE check out each cause individually below. These groups all support people and places that have touched my life in a variety of ways, and it’s important to me to return the favor in any way I can. @tb12foundation @bestbuddies @navysealfoundation @pattillmanfnd @elliefund @thejimmyfund The Robert and Myra Kraft Family Foundation The Tom Martinez Goal Line Fund

Do or do not. There is no try.
