BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick showed his support for the Watertown Police Department on Friday night, donning a WPD sweatshirt when he addressed the media following the second and third rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft.
“That was an unbelievable job they did,” Belichick said of the Watertown Police Department’s role in last Friday’s manhunt of the two suspected Boston Marathon bombers. “I’m sure we all followed it, followed as closely as we could. Just supporting people that protect our safety and our freedom – the police, the military. That’s what makes it all possible to do what we do. [I’m] behind them all the way.”
As is the case with most — if not all — of Belichick’s hoodies, the sleeves were cut off at the elbow.
The Patriots made four selections on Friday night: Southern Mississippi linebacker Jamie Collins, Marhsall wide receiver Aaron Dobson, and Rutgers defensive backs Logan Ryan and Duron Harmon. They have four selections remaining on Saturday.
