Patriots Blog: Belichick Did His Part, Now Players Get Their Turn

FOXBORO (CBS) –  It’s almost time for some football here at Gillette.


Before players hit the field for their first practice on Friday, last year’s team captains will address the media today.

Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo, and Devin McCourty will all be on at Gillette today ready to answer questions from reporters. And after head coach Bill Belichick addressed the Aaron Hernandez arrest yesterday, you can imagine it will be the topic of many of the questions that are hurled their way.

How many of the players knew about it and how many have been there?
