42. Julius Adams

As of this writing, Julius Adams is one of four players who has played over 200 Games for the New England Patriots, which places him in rare company.

Adams' NFL career began in 1971, where he bounced between Defensive Tackle and Defensive End, and while Sacks and Tackles were not official stats, he had years where he was the team leader in one of those categories.  After a pair of seasons (1978 & 1979) where he missed games due to injury, he made a comeback in 1980 and was named to the Pro Bowl.  Adams continued to play until 1985, finishing up at the Patriots' Super Bowl loss to Chicago, retiring shortly after.  He would come back in 1987 for one more year, and then Adams would retire for good.
