New Patriots assistant receivers coach Tiquan Underwood won’t get the same treatment as Alex Van Pelt or DeMarcus Covington, who both made their first public comments this week in team-produced videos.

But Underwood found a way to get his message out by going to social media.

Underwood spent one season playing for the Patriots in 2011, but his short stint with the franchise is most-known for New England cutting him a day prior to Super Bowl XLVI.

“God’s Plan. He has a funny sense of humor!” Underwood posted on the X platform. “Fired SB weekend and hired SB weekend lol. Cool how things come full circle. Trusting his plan.”
