FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is scheduled to speak to reporters on Wednesday -- his first availability since tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested on murder charges.

Belichick's news conference is scheduled the day before players begin reporting for training camp. Quarterback Tom Brady and other veterans are scheduled to address the media on Thursday. Practices are to start on Friday.

Hernandez has been charged with murder in the June killing of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. He has pleaded not guilty.

Also Monday, the Patriots signed defensive lineman Anthony Rashad White, of Michigan State.
