VIDEO: Watch Ernie Adams Full Retirement Press ConferenceSteve Balestrieri - PatsFans.com

After a 21 year career working with the New England Patriots, “Football Research Director” Ernie Adams officially said his final goodbye’s on Wednesday, holding a press conference with the media for the first time ever as he heads into retirement.

New England Patriots media members were treated to a surprise availability session following head coach Bill Belichick’s final minicamp presser before the team breaks for the summer.

Belichick shared the following statement thanking Adams at the conclusion of his own press conference before he took to the podium.

“Ernie’s had such a big impact on our success here with the Patriots in so many different ways, from his organization with Scott [Pioli] in the personnel department and the grading scale and so forth to strategic coaching, situationally, game-planning in all three phases of the game — offense, defense, special teams — team building, personnel acquisition and so forth,” Belichick said. “I’ve leaned heavily on Ernie for 21 years here and going back to Cleveland and New York and our relationship which started at Andover over 50 years ago. Ernie’s been a great friend. He’s certainly been a great asset to this organization and to me personally, and I think that a lot of the things that he’s done have also been recognized by other coaches and other staffs in the league and a lot of people that are doing things that he does for different organizations. But some of the things that he really, I would say started and uncovered and showed the value of them here, but his versatility and ability to do so many different things and his passion for football is really second to none.”  

So what did the football “man of mystery” have to say? You can watch Adam’s full retirement press conference courtesy of the Patriots below.
