It may only be the start of training camp, but Bill Belichick is already in midseason press conference form. He got in some reps at providing non-answers when grilled by the Boston Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy over ex-corner Malcolm Butler’s surprise Super Bowl benching.
Shockingly, Belichick refused to provide any details surrounding Butler, and said he was focused on training camp. It’s like a preseason “on to Cincinnati” answer. He even listed a number of past seasons, by year, that he wasn’t focused on.
Even Belichick needs preseason reps, and this was a nice little scrimmage with Shaughnessy to get loose.
