Bill Belichick : (00:00)
No, there are questions about Antonio. We take all the situations with our team very seriously and there were some things that we’re looking into, but I’m not going to have any comment on any of the off the field situations or questions on that. So anything on football I could answer?

Speaker 2: (00:22)
Raise hands, I’ll call on you and [crosstalk 00:00:27]-

Speaker 3: (00:26)
As far as your work with Antonio in football, do the off field accusations, allegations, complicate your ability to coach him, feelings about him personally?

Bill Belichick : (00:38)
Yeah. When we work on football, we work on football.

Speaker 2: (00:40)

Speaker 4: (00:43)
Coach, could you just talk a little bit about Antonio Brown’s role this weekend?

Bill Belichick : (00:49)
No, I’m going to get into that. We’re going to do what’s best for the team like we always do.

Speaker 2: (00:54)
[inaudible 00:00:57].

Speaker 5: (00:57)
You always say you want what’s best for the team. So how do you weigh with your players, their performance on the field with their behavior off the field and what’s best for the team involved?

Bill Belichick : (01:11)

Speaker 5: (01:14)
Well, how important is the behavior off the field?

Bill Belichick : (01:15)
Everything’s important.

Speaker 2: (01:29)
[inaudible 00:01:33], go ahead.

Speaker 7: (01:35)
Bill, another headline today focusing on Antonio Brown. Does any of this at all effect his status with the team?

Bill Belichick : (01:42)
Yeah. I think I’ve already addressed this. So we’re going to get ready for the Jets here. I’m happy to answer any football questions, but rest of it, I’m done with the rest of it.

Speaker 8: (01:52)
