Poll Shows Patriots’ Bill Belichick Second-Most Respected NFL Executive

Bill Belichick is a well-known name throughout New England and the NFL.

And why wouldn’t he be?

Between dressing his dog in a hoodie, to being the most successful NFL coach over the nearly last 20 years, Belichick certainly has made his mark in the league.

And a poll conducted by USA Today of 25 agents further proved that after the results showed the 66-year-old ranked second as the most respected executive across the league. Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome ranked No. 1, with Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider coming in at No. 3.

Belichick was the only dual head coach/GM to make that list, with the others exclusively being general managers.

The agents ranked the Patriots second in contract negotiation preparedness, with the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets tied for least prepared.
