Patriots purchase pair of 767 jets for travel

A brand new plane - which, to be clear, these are not - costs in the neighborhood of $200 million per. Emblazoned on the outside of at least one of the planes is a giant team logo on the body and five Lombardi trophies on the tail. "They're the dynasty. They're America".

He was taken from the practice field in an ambulance after taking a hit to the head and neck. Even without the Texans' star defensive end, Wilfork helped Houston claim the 12th spot in rushing yards allowed and second in passing yards allowed. It wouldn't be out of the ordinary for other teams to follow suit and start buying their own planes. The NFL's online store, nflshop.com, says Lynch's number 24 jersey was the top sold in seven states out west, including California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, and Alaska. He is an avid fisherman, and he often posts pictures of himself catching big fish on social media. According to ESPN the average cost of one aircraft is around $10 million but can range from $6-65 million depending on miles flown and condition. ESPN, who first broke the story, mentioned that both jets have been retrofitted with first class seats in a luxury charter configuration. "For the players' sake they're going to travel in comfort".

"I always wanted to come back and be a Patriot for life".

Many made a joke about how the Patriots have long owned the Jets.

He was lauded by team owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick in an emotional ceremony at Gillette Stadium. He was a five-time Pro Bowler, one-time first-team All-Pro and a two-time Super Bowl champion.
