Belichick takes high road on A.D.

By Mike Reiss

Bill Belichick was asked about the Patriots’ decision to release linebacker Adalius Thomas today during a radio interview on WEEI's "Big Show", and he took the high road with his answer.

“After the draft, we talked about the personnel and looked at our roster and so forth, and made the decision to move on with the players that we have,” Belichick told host Glenn Ordway. “I think he was a good football player. He came in and had a heck of a year for us in ’07. Again, at this point of time, we just felt like that was the direction we were going to go in.”
