On Monday, former Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins posted a meme on Instagram that could logically be interpreted as a shot at his former team. If it was, his former coach probably won’t be happy with who liked it.
Collins’ graphic read “I may not be where I need to be, but thank God I’m not where I used to be.” The caption included the hashtag “#BetterDays,” and he tagged former Pats defensive lineman Anthony Johnson in the post, with Johnson retweeting the link on Twitter.
Other former and current Patriots liked the post on Instagram, including New England safety Duron Harmon and defensive end Jabaal Sheard. Former Pats to like the post included Chandler Jones and Alfonzo Dennard.
The Patriots surprisingly traded Collins to the Browns for a conditional 2017 third-round pick on Oct. 31, a controversial move given Collins' status as one of New England's better defensive players since the team drafted him in the second round in 2013.
