Three Time Super Bowl Champion Retires From NFL

One of the best players in the National Football League at his position has retired from the league. Patriots' special teams star Matthew Slater, a wide receiver who has made ten Pro Bowls and has five first-team All-Pro appearances, has called it a career. The 38 year-old has announced his retirement from the NFL after fifteen years in the league. This comes after legendary head coach Bill Belichick's departure from New England and now the Patriots lose another star just before free agency opens up.

The Patriots Lose One Of The NFL's Best In Special Teams

Matthew Slater has had a historical career with the Patriots. A member of the Patriots All-Dynasty Team, he won the Bart Starr and Art Rooney Awards in 2017 and 2021 for being an incredible leader on and off the field. Voted a captain multiple times by teammates, he scored a touchdown in 2019 off a blocked punt. He also was the longest tenured Patriot entering the 2023 season.

While Devin Hester, the newly Hall-Of-Fame special teams legend, is regarded as the greatest special teams player of all time, Slater is up there and can be argued for being the greatest as well. Slater has a good chance of wearing the gold jacket in a few years and join all the other Patriots in the Pro Football Hall Of Fame someday.
