Jalen Mills #31 of the Philadelphia Eagles interacts with the crowd during the game against the Los Angeles Chargers at the StubHub Center on October 1, 2017 in Carson, California.

When the Patriots’ free agency signings were asked about their first interactions with Bill Belichick, none had a better story than Jalen Mills. The star-struck encounter was highlighted by an excited Mills screaming “this is f***ing Coach Belichick!” in the middle of the Gillette Stadium cafeteria.

“No, not yet,” he replied. In fact, he had another story.
