Here’s what Kyle Van Noy said about his release by the Patriots this spring

The Patriots’ quest to get younger and faster on defense in 2022 came at a cost, with several experienced championship-winning players heading out of Foxborough.

Kyle Van Noy was one of them: New England released the 31-year-old linebacker in March after a solid season in which he had 27 pressures, five sacks, and one interception, which he returned for a touchdown.

During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Van Noy said he wasn’t entirely surprised by the move: “I had a feeling just because (of) how people were moving behind the scenes there,” he said on Friday.
