In his first press conference of the year, Bill Belichick had a lot of questions to answer. As is usually the case, he didn’t say too much.
Belichick brought up the Albert Haynesworth trade unprompted saying the deal was in the “acquiring process” but not complete. He then deflected any questions about Haynesworth, saying he’ll comment if and when a deal is done.
Perhaps he just wants Haynesworth to pass a physical before saying it’s a done deal. We’ve watched enough Belichick pressers to know that there’s no way he would bring up Haynesworth’s name unless a trade was essentially agreed to.
While he wouldn’t address Haynesworth further directly, Belichick did say you can “never have too much” of a pass rush. He also mentioned that this year, with the new practice rules in place, are evidence of the changing times in the NFL.
“I think Bob Dylan said something about that,” Belichick said with a grin before walking off the podium.
