One of the more under-appreciated players from the greatest team to lose a Super Bowl, the 2007 New England Patriots, was wide receiver Donte Stallworth. Playing alongside stars like Randy Moss and Wes Welker, not to mention Tom Brady in full Mariokart Super Star mode, Stallworth notched a tidy 697 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns before the Pats let him go that offseason.
And while almost all of us were giving our laptops the Bill Belichick Microsoft Surface treatment this morning after reading about the "WTF?!?" trade that sent stud linebacker Jamie Collins to the Browns for a third-round pick, Donte Stallworth had a much funnier take on the situation that also burned a familiar Patriots nemesis on Twitter.
Bart Hubboch, the New York Post writer who, at one point, was babbling on about how Tom Brady not making as much money as, say, Drew Brees, was a legitimate instance of New England cheating again, seemed to actually be trying to make a coherent point this morning after learning about Collins getting shipped out:
I don't get this Jamie Collins trade. Why not wait until after the season, when they would get a compensatory pick not far off from a third?— Bart Hubbuch (@BartHubbuch) October 31, 2016
Aaaaaaaaaaaand then here comes Stallworth off the top rope:

Donte clearly still has some love for the Patriots, as he frequently tweets about how well-run the team is and why they're consistently in the championship hunt no matter how crazy the moves they make seem to be.
Let's hope he's right this time, because there's a lot of people in New England now with a jersey for a guy that'll soon be suiting up for the undisputed worst team in the NFL.
