Former New England Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell returned to New England this week as part of his “Read With Malcolm” child literacy program.

ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss sat down for an interview with Mitchell to talk football, his retirement and what lies ahead.

Mitchell has had 10 surgeries on his knee leading to a premature retirement from the NFL, but his impact on the Patriots, especially in Super Bowl LI hasn’t been forgotten.

During the comeback, Mitchell hauled in five receptions for 63 yards in the fourth quarter.

On “3/28 Day” Reiss shared a few videos from his interview with Mitchell over Twitter.

On his Instagram Friday, Mitchell shared a heartfelt thank you message to the Patriots and their fans.

Rewind to that time you looked at me so deep I saw a reflection of the real me. Rewind to that time you made me yell with laughter, fist fight in the front lawn and dry my tears shortly after my father ran away. Rewind to that time we danced, overflowed with red wine, the times singing and laughing, unconcerned… Who cares what they say? Rewind to that time we spent sweating and crying and bleeding and aching. Celebrating. Freeze me in those moments, please. I’m scared they will wonder astray. Rewind to those times another time, it’s my time to walk away. … “Once a patriot…” You can finish the rest. Thank you all for the well-wishes. I appreciate you.

“I’m not 100 percent sure where I’ll end up in life,” Mitchell said. “With football, it’s easy to see into the future and build an idea of where you want it to end up. With that gone, it’s been a little hazy to see where I’ll end up. One thing I hope people in New England know is that I made sure I went out a Patriot.”
