Ex-Patriot Asante Samuel drops hot take about impact on Bill Belichick

Asante Samuel helped the patriots win two Super Bowls during his five-year tenure in New England.
He also influenced the coaching style of the greatest coach in NFL history.
At least that's what Samuel says. In a tweet on Tuesday morning, the former Patriots cornerback said that he had "(Bill) Belichick better understood the cornerback position" and insisted that Belichick teach some of his current players some of the methods Samuel used, even though he had initially rejected it.

Fun fact: I made Belichick better understand the cornerback position and understand how to play in every report. He never agreed with my style of play, but now he teaches it. # pick6 #hof

Samuel didn't reveal any details, but, as CLNS Media's Evan Lazar points out, the Pro Bowl cornerback used a "T-Step" technique in which he set his foot sideways to break the ball faster.

Are we talking about technology (Samuel was the king of the T-step) or scheme (cover-1 / divider leverage)? #Patriots

Bundle of cut-ups from Samuel with the "T" step up his pedal to break on the ball. See how his plant foot stands at a side angle and has the shape of a "T" to drive on the ball. #Patriots

The T-step is an aggressive technique that passers-by can uncover with double pulls, but it allowed Samuel to collect 22 interceptions in New England. Perhaps the ex-cornerback says that Belichick is now teaching his players this technique after being clear about it.
This is not out of the question, as Belichick has shown his willingness to adapt to new NFL trends in his 45 years in the league.
Samuel was clearly in a nostalgic mood on Tuesday because he also shared another memory of Belichick that was having a hard time during a 2013 game between the Patriots and Atlanta Falcons that Samuel was playing for at the time. (Warning: Tweet contains NSFW language.)

Fun fact: When I was in Atlanta and preparing to play the Patriots before the game, Tom, Tom and Bill huddled together and Belichick immediately started talking shit to me. So we rock! # pick6

Samuel and Belichick didn't have the best relationship - the ex-cornerback made it clear where he was in the debate between Belichick and Tom Brady - but the two of them didn't seem to be about a friendly joke.
If only Belichick had a Twitter account to offer his page of Samuel's latest stories.
