Before taking questions on Tuesday’s weekly conference call, Bill Belichick called an unusual audible with an opening announcement.
There was good reason for it. Belichick had a roster addition to announce.
“We have roster addition to announce this morning. It’s a little different than the usual one, emphasis would be on little,” Belichick teased.
Then he announced that he had become a grandfather as his son Steve and his girlfriend, Jen, welcomed a baby girl into the world early Tuesday morning.
“We can add newborn Blakely Rose to the depth chart,” Belichick said. “She was born this morning to my son Steve and the real MVP, Jen. This is a happy and exciting day for all of us.”
And the measurables on Blakely Rose?
“20 inches, seven pounds,” Belichick said.
Steve Belichick has been on his dad’s staff since 2012 and is in his first season as...
Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has insinuated he would be interested in running in 2018 against current Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren for some time. Tuesday he made it official, pending the approval of his wife, Shonda.
Appearing on WPRO-AM in Providence Tuesday morning, Schilling offered the most definitive commitment to date when it came to his political future.
“I’ve made my decision. I’m going to run,” Schilling said during the interview. “But – but – I haven’t talked to Shonda, my wife. And ultimately it’s going to come down to how her and I feel this would affect our marriage and our kids.”
Two recent polls showed Warren with a substantial lead over Schilling, with the WBZ/UMass survey conducted last...
Week 7 in the NFL marks the first week players on the PUP list can begin practicing with their respective teams.
For the Patriots they have offensive lineman Tre’ Jackson and running back Dion Lewis. Bill Belichick was asked if the two would begin practicing this week on his weekly conference call Tuesday morning.
“Probably not this week,” Belichick said.
The Patriots have until Week 11 for the two players to start practicing. Once they do start practicing, the team has 21 days to activate them to the active roster, or else they get reverted to injured reserve.
Jackson has been out with a knee injury since training camp, but has been at practice stretching with the team in recent weeks. Lewis hasn’t been seen at all besides in the locker room since his second surgery on his knee following ACL surgery last season.
While both players likely won’t be back at practice this week, they should be in the...
