Chris Hogan spent the last three seasons with the New England Patriots, but the veteran wide receiver left the team in NFL free agency to begin the next chapter of his career.

Hogan departed the Pats to sign with the Carolina Panthers on a one-year contract. He was asked Thursday by a fan on Twitter why he left the Patriots, and he gave a simple explanation, one that his former coach Bill Belichick would even respect. 

Hogan had a decent year with the Patriots and won two Super Bowl titles alongside quarterback Tom Brady, but it was time for both sides to move after his disappointing 2018 season.

He never really became the guy in New England. 

But he won a few Rings, so in that regard, he did his JOB.
