“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.
Caldwell had his best NFL season with the Patriots in 2006 when he caught 61 passes for 760 yards with four receiving touchdowns. He led the Patriots in all three categories that season.
