Journalism career

Started at Jackson Clarion-Ledger in 2004 covering Mississippi State. Then moved on to The Birmingham News in 2006, to cover the Alabama Crimson Tide. As reported on Pardon My Take ("PMT"), he applied for a job with the Boston Herald on the basis that he would cover Bill Belichick in the same manner he covered Nick Saban; being two coaches that do not like to reveal much to the media. After receiving the job, he served as a Patriots beat reporter for the Boston Herald for three seasons starting in 2009. Rapoport joined the NFL Network in 2012. In 2014, he high-fived a man in the face, (the man's eye) and instead of apologizing he turned around and smiled.[2]
