“How do we feeeeeeel about Matthew Slater’s birthday?”
On Wednesday, the New England Patriots and some teammates celebrated Slater’s 35th birthday.
The NFL veteran and ten-time special teams captain will enter his 12th professional season since being drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round of the 2008 draft.
With Tom Brady and Stephen Gostkowski moving on to other teams, Slater is now the longest tenured member of the franchise.
