Kraft: Jets-Belichick 'the best trade we ever made'

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft threw a pretty nice party Sunday night, as he hosted his team for its Super Bowl ring ceremony at his Chestnut Hill, Mass. home.

And in typical AFC East fashion, it didn't go without a friendly little dig or two from one division rival to the next.

"I still think the best trade we ever made was when I sent a first-round choice to our good friends, the New York Jets, for Bill Belichick," Kraft quipped when addressing the crowd during a speech.

Belichick followed up with a nice little note of his own.

"Robert, thanks for your kind words," Belichick said, as documented the event via video. "Don't forget that seventh we threw the Jets too in that trade."
