The New England Patriots made an early decision on Kyle Van Noty and released him to free some cap space, $5 million free now (per Field Yates). Van Noy is not just any player on the roster, he is one of the most experienced veterans who was out of the team during 2020 as he was playing with the Dolphins but last 2021-20 season he played again with the Patriots.
Van Noy was drafted by the Lions in 2014 after an impressive college football career, but with the Lions he played a couple of seasons as a rookie that weren't the best of his careers and it was obvious how Van Noy was wasting his time in Detroit.
The Patriots took Van Noy and a seventh round pick in 2016 and the Tigers got a sixth round pick for the 2017 draft. It was one of the best trades of the second decade of the 21st century for the Patriots and probably one of the worst mistakes the Tigers have ever made.
