All time special-teamer retires

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-20

Slater announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday.

Slater is calling it a career after 16 seasons in the NFL, all of which were spent with New England as a standout on special teams. The 2008 fifth-round pick retires with three Super Bowl rings, five first-team All-Pro nods, and 10 Pro Bowl honors under his belt. Former Patriots coach Bill Belichick recently referred to Slater as the best special-teams player in NFL history, per Mike Reiss of ESPN, saying he was glad to have coached the greatest players in all three phases of the game, the others being Tom Brady on offense and Lawrence Taylor on defense.

Will play Week 17

Slater (hamstring) is available for Sunday's tilt against the Bills.

Slater is returning from a one-game absence due to a hamstring issue. Look for him to take on his usual responsibilities as the Patriots' special teams anchor assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Won't play versus Denver

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-24

Slater (hamstring) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos.

It marks the first time since 2017 that Slater has missed a game in his 14-year NFL career. The Patriots elevated Breon Borders to the active roster, who could fill in for Slater for Sunday's contest.

Remains limited to special teams

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-06

Slater played all 21 of his snaps on special teams in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers.

Slater has suited up for all 12 of the Patriots' games this season but has played all 272 of his snaps on special teams. Though he's listed as a receiver, Slater hasn't even drawn a target since the 2016 season and likely won't be counted on to contribute on offense even if the four wideouts currently on New England's Week 14 injury report -- DeVante Parker (knee), Demario Douglas (concussion), JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) aren't able to play Thursday against the Steelers.
