New England Patriots Hall of Famer Kevin Faulk would certainly know a thing or two about what it takes to have a successful career in New England. It looks like Faulk is sharing his knowledge.

Faulk, who played at running back for the Patriots from 1999-2011, was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2016.

Nick Brossette, a running back who also hails from Faulk’s LSU, was signed by the Patriots shortly after the 2019 draft as an undrafted free agent, and apparently received some wise words from the New England legend.

Kevin Faulk says Nick Brossette FaceTimed him when he got picked up by the New England Patriots.

Faulk gave him this advice about how to stick around with Bill Belichick: “Just be quiet and do your job.” #LSU

Some things never change. 

“Do your job,” which has become, for all intents and purposes, the Patriots’ team motto, is an ethos that should serve Brossette well.

Being quiet is also something that Patriots coach Bill Belichick is said to value, preaching the importance of “ignoring the noise” and openly loathing social media networks like “SnapFace” and “InstaChat.”

Brossette’s challenge may not be with respect to behavior, but with respect to the fact he joins a crowded room at running back.

The Patriots, who were already well stocked at running back with Super Bowl LIII standout Sony Michel and others leading the charge, also added running back Damien Harris in the third round of the draft.
