Patriots DB Devin McCourty can’t wait to call out Bill Belichick for his Subway commercial.

The unprecedented entity that is 2020 hasn’t failed to impact the New England Patriots organization in strange ways. Not only did Tom Brady depart in free agency, but Cam Newton — a player who seemingly doesn’t fit their buttoned-up culture — is set to be his immediate replacement.

What’s just as bizarre is the fact that head coach Bill Belichick, who is normally not heard from throughout the NFL offseason, was spotted last week filming a commercial for Subway.

Whether it was the boredom of quarantine or his affinity for the famed sandwich chain that prompted his agreement to shoot the ad remains to be seen.

What we do know for certain, however, is that some of his players are champing at the bit to roast him for his eventual cameo in the Subway plug.

“I can’t wait till we get back in this building and we can all talk about this five-dollar foot long Subway commercial set that we all saw Bill on,” said defensive back Devin McCourty on his Double Coverage podcast. “He had on his same coaches sneakers from the facility.”

"“I am excited to see, are we going to get free Subway for the year? Is that going to be what happens? Subway makes a great chocolate chip cookie, I believe, as I used to eat there all the time. So, I am excited to see what comes of this. Was he selfish and just worked out a deal just for himself? Or did he put the team first and bring Subway to everybody? So, we’ll see how it works out. Maybe COVID meals are Subway from now on,” McCourty continued."

For a guy that is notorious for laying low when he’s not coaching on the sidelines, this had to be the reaction that Belichick expected once that clip made the rounds on social media.

Not many players on New England can call out the six-time Super Bowl champion and walk away scot-free, but McCourty, who’s been with the franchise since 2010, is undoubtedly one of them. All we want to know now is how offended the two-time Pro Bowler would be if the legendary head coach didn’t cut out a deal for his team.

Either way, this was a priceless reaction from the Patriots veteran, and we would expect nothing less, as he’s always been a solid source for good comedy.
