Bill Belichick, Patriots Aren't Treating Chiefs' Travis Kelce Like Tight End

5 monthes ago   |   By NESN

FOXBORO, Mass. - The Kansas City Chiefs' top receiver isn't a receiver. Not technically, at least.

ESPN's Mike Reiss on Wednesday assessed the New England Patriots head coach's job security in 2019 as air-tight. Considering Belichick has led the Patriots to a record six Super Bowl titles as head coach and the team is 10-2 this season, he thoroughly deserves the glowing rating Reiss gave him.
“After 20 years as Patriots coach, Belichick has basically purchased his seat as if it were a personal seat license at Gillette Stadium,” Reiss wrote. “Better yet, call it his throne.”
