Lawyer Milloy On Felger & Mazz: Took A While To Get Over Release From Patriots
" BOSTON (CBS) – Former Patriots safety Lawyer Milloy joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Mazz on Radio Row on Friday, reflecting on how his Patriots career came to an end and how it helped him understand the NFL.

Milloy spent the first seven years of his NFL career in New England, first coached by Bill Parcells followed by Carroll. He played for Bill Belichick for two seasons, winning the Super Bowl with the team in 2001, before being abruptly released just days before the 2003 season began.

It was a move that shocked many, and angered Milloy for a long time. But as he matured as a player and understood the business side of the game, he came to terms with the move.

“It was a while (before I got over it),” said Milloy. “I saw coach Belichick in the preseason when I was with Atlanta, four or five years afterwards. He said ‘look Lawyer I respect you and I’m sorry for how everything went down.’ That was closure for me.”
