Eight players and one coach who represented Patriots made it to the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team. As mentioned earlier, Tom Brady makes it to the list with head coach Bill Belichick. The duo is joined by Rob Gronkowski, Logan Mankins, Stephen Gostkowski, Chandler Jones, Darrelle Revis, Cordarrelle Patterson and Antonio Brown. Notorious wide receiver Antonio Brown made his name in last decade for his stellar performances for Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown did play one game for the Patriots before being released after he was accused of sexual assault.
Buccaneers' new quarterback Tom Brady was arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the league last decade after he led the Patriots to three Super Bowl titles between 2010-2019. Tom Brady and former Houston Texans punter Shane Lechler are the only two players who made it to the All-Decade team of the 2000s and 2010s.
