“No matter what happens in life, I’ll forever be a World Champion,” Mitchell says in the photo.
He also captioned it with this: “New England, thank you! My heart hurts, but I smile when thinking about all the love, support and patience you have given me. To the community this is not goodbye, it’s I’ll see you later. Go Pats! 💙❤️”
Mitchell’s best moment in his short career with the Patriots came when he had a major part in guiding the the team to a comeback win in overtime against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. The wide receiver caught six passes for 70 yards that game.
