Patriots head coach Bill Belichick released a brief statement Sunday on the death of wide receiver Reche Caldwell, who played for New England in 2006.

“I am saddened to hear the news about Reche,” Belichick said, via the team’s Twitter account. “He is remembered for his solid contribution to our team. My thoughts and prayers are with Reche’s family.”

Caldwell, 41, was shot and killed in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday night, his mother told TMZ.
