With the Dolphins set to release OLB Kyle Van Noy, a natural question is if the Patriots might have interest in his return. The Twitter account of Devin and Jason McCourty posted a picture of Van Noy with a set of eyes, highlighting how they would favor the possibility. But how realistic is it? No doors are being closed by Van Noy, who enjoyed some of his greatest career success in New England. As for the club, it has more pressing needs. So it would have to be at a reduced rate to consider it.

In an appearance on the "I Am Athlete" podcast, Cam Newton shared his viewpoint of Bill Belichick, saying: "I think Bill Belichick is the most misunderstood person in all of sports. He's dope as sh—. He is a cool dude who understands the game. He's like a historian of the game. And for you to just sit down and chat with him it's like ‘Damn'. He's going back and he's got film, literally teaching the game."

The compensation is modest; it reflects how the Colts were one of the only clubs willing to take on a significant financial commitment for Wentz. The Patriots had the cap space and resources to do something similar. That they didn't speaks to their view of Wentz at that financial level.
