The New England Patriots and Bill Belichick parted ways after 24 years together. Things started to feel off in Foxborough so both sides decided it was time for a breakup.

A few months later Belichick is still without a job for the 2024 season. The future Hall of Fame coach may no longer be apart of the Patriots organization but his hatred for the New York Jets is still prevalent.

Belichick was on the "Pat McAfee Show" and talked about the 2023 NFL Draft and how the Pats weren't upset that the Jets got screwed.

In his appearance on the show, Belichick discussed last year's draft. New England originally held the No. 14 pick and the New York Jets were in the 15th slot.

Belichick said, "We moved back a couple of spots and of course, we didn't know the Steelers we're going to take the guy the Jets wanted. I mean, I'll say we weren't heartbroken that it happened."

The Jets were rumored to be heavily linked to Georgia's Broderick Jones and reportedly honed in on him. Unfortunately for them, they never had a chance to snag him.

The Pittsburgh Steelers gave the Patriots No. 17 and No. 120 overall to move up to No. 14 and selected Jones. New York ended up picking Will McDonald with the 15th pick.

The 72-year-old coach added the Pats were always locked in on CB Christian Gonzalez. He said, "In the end, we ended up getting the guy we wanted with Gonzalez."

Nonetheless, Belichick couldn't help himself and take another jab at the Jets. That was one of his most hated rivals and he dominated them during his time in New England. Belichick had a 38-12 record against New York as the Patriots' head coach.
