Inclement weather is no excuse for being late to a Patriots team meeting.
That’s the lesson that four Patriots learned Wednesday morning, including Randy Moss. Shalise Manza Young of the Providence Journal wrote on Twitter that Moss, Derrick Burgess, Gary Guyton, and Adalius Thomas were sent home.
Weather reportedly created traffic problems in Foxborough, but perhaps coach Bill Belichick wanted to send a message to his team.
The four players will not be able to participate in practice or team meetings on Wednesday, usually a huge day for installation of the game plan.
UPDATE: Belichick would not confirm or deny the report at his press conference. He said that any discipline on the team will stay between him and his players.
UPDATE II: Tom Brady’s response to the report: “You guys find out everything these days, don’t you?”
