The New England Patriots recently announced the 27 members of its 2000s All-Decade Team. Former UCLA star Roman Phifer was selected to the team comprised of the greatest Patriots from the franchise's most successful decade.
Players selected to the 2000s All-Decade team represent a combined 37 Pro Bowl appearances and all but four of the members earned Super Bowl Championships with the Patriots.
Phifer, chosen as one of two inside linebackers on the All-Decade Team, won three Super Bowls in his Patriots career from 2001-04. Originally drafted by the Los Angeles Rams, Phifer signed with the Patriots in 2001. He played in 59 games with the Patriots and started in each of the Patriots' three Super Bowl victories.
The All-Decade Team was selected by the New England Patriots Hall of Fame Nomination Committee, a 22-person panel made up of reporters, alumni and staff.
