Decade Wrap Up #5: Here is the Patriots 53 man all decade roster

Here is the ultimate 53-player roster for the Patriots over the last 10 years. There are a staggering amount of current Pats on the list, but maybe not so surprising when you realize that Devin McCourty, Duron Harmon and Patrick Chung have taken almost all of the snaps at safety this decade.

I badly wanted to put Randy Moss on the team, but he was cut during the 2010 season, so he in theory would have qualified but there were guys who contributed more in the 2010’s.

However you slice it, this is a damn good team.
