Belichick seemed sincerely bothered by the fact that one of his former players is accused of murder, but with that being said, he doesn’t want to talk about it anymore.
After briefly referring to Hernandez at the beginning of his written statement, he refused to call him by his name again. Once he was done speaking, he said he won’t be talking on the matter anymore.
“I respect the judicial process and have been advised not to comment on ongoing legal proceedings and I am advising our players to do the same,” he said.
Curious to see as Hernandez’s court proceedings continue, if the Patriots will continue to act like he never existed.
