Patriots | Belichick: T. Johnson Leaves a Champion reports New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick had some nice words for LB Ted Johnson, who was forced to announce his retirement from the NFL Thursday, July 28, because of multiple concussions. "Ted informed me of his decision today and we had a good discussion," said Belichick. "Although his retirement is unexpected, we thoroughly respect his decision and support him as he moves on. It goes without saying, but Ted Johnson is a class act. He was a solid contributor to this defense and the New England Patriots organization his entire career. Ted's signature was a work ethic and toughness that were second to none. He retires a champion."
