INDIANAPOLIS -- The Patriots have lost yet another member of their organization.

According to the Boston Globe, character coach Jack Easterby is leaving the team after six seasons. His contract was up following last season and he will now pursue other opportunities in football. This just adds to the number of people leaving the organization since Super Bowl LIII.

Easterby had a variety of roles and was a huge favorite among players, even Bill Belichick. The report said he's leaving because he felt his time with the team had run its course and the Robert Kraft prostitution arrest does not sit well with him.

He was first hired following the Aaron Hernandez murder arrest and also played a major part in helping Josh Gordon adjust to life in New England this season.

While rarely seen, he is a person who will be very much missed within the organization.
