Belichick told reporters: "Devin's huge. He's really our most experienced player in terms of on our team in our system. He's played corner, played safety, played some of the other positions too – the nickel, dime positions from time to time, certain matchups.

"He understands our defense well, he gives us a lot of experience back there, continuity, good communication, smart player, really anticipates, has good awareness, good instincts."
