The fighting has continued at Patriots camp, and Bill Belichick is getting sick of it.
Although Belichick previously said training camp fights are part of football and no big deal, a fight between Julian Edelman and Niko Koutouvides today was a big enough deal that Belichick kicked both players off the field.
The fight started when Edelman, who was fielding a punt, ran into Koutouvides. They exchanged words and shoved each other before Belichick gave them the old heave-ho.
New England has had several fights break out in camp this year. Last time the punishment was more running for everyone, but apparently the message didn’t get through to Edelman and Koutouvides.
