Bill Belichick does not like distractions.
Before Antonio Brown took to the practice field for the first time as a member of the Patriots — head coach Bill Belichick confirmed that he would participate in team activities, despite Tuesday’s news that Brown is facing a lawsuit from a woman accusing him of sexual assault.
That’s when reporters sent a barrage of questions his way on the allegations.
“On Antonio’s situation, both Antonio and his representatives have made statements, so I’m not going to be expanding on any of those. They are what they are. We’ve looked into the situation. We’re taking it very seriously, all the way through the organization. I’m sure there are questions but I’m not going to be entering into any discussion about that,” Belichick said.
Asked for follow-up information about Brown, Belichick didn’t answer, saying, “We’re done with that. Anything else on Miami?”
That’s when he made his exit.
Patriots are on to Miami…..
