For a second straight year, the New England Patriots’ contingent is not expected to meet with reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and director of player personnel Nick Caserio will both travel to the combine, which begins Thursday, but neither has scheduled a press conference, according to the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe.
The New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys are the only other NFL teams that have not scheduled media access as of Tuesday.
Eight other head coaches, including Super Bowl winner Pete Carroll, also are not scheduled to address the media at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Coaches and execs do sometimes meet with media members informally, though, as Caserio has in years past.
