Belichick Press Conference Transcript

Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick addresses the media during his interview following a mini-camp practice on Tuesday, June 16, 2015.

BB: This is just really a continuation for us of the OTAs from last week. [We're] just trying to keep pushing along, work on situations, try to get a lot of people reps, give a lot of people an opportunity to learn what to do so when we get to training camp we'll be able to evaluate them. [We'll] just keep grinding it out.

Q: What's it like to have Matt Flynn here? What does he bring in terms of experience?

BB: We'll see. He's had some playing experience. We'll see how it goes.

Q: Can a guy who has served as a backup in the past provide a different type of perspective when it comes to a situation like this?

BB: I don't know. What he needs to do is learn what we're doing and try to go out there and execute it well. That's what his job is.

Q: What are your early impressions of Fred Davis?

BB: Fred's been here through the whole process, the OTAs. It's a different kind of system for him. He's been out of football for a little while, but [he's] worked hard, worked very hard to try to pick things up and learn a new system. He's coming along. He's making progress.

Q: What was the decision behind the timing to bring in Matt Flynn now?

BB: We thought it was the right time to do it.

Q: Is that after getting a look at Garrett Gilbert?

BB: There are a lot of factors that go into those kinds of decisions.

Q: What was the ring ceremony like on Sunday night for you?

BB: It was a great night, but really that kind of closes the book on last season. We'll just move ahead to 2015, which is where we need to be.

Q: How long does it take for Matt Flynn to pick up the terminology?

BB: I don't know. We'll see. We'll just take it day by day.

Q: How much has a guy like James Develin improved since he's been here?

BB: Probably like most players, it's a big jump from year one to year two. He's a very consistent player, smart guy, works hard. [He] really does everything we ask him to do.
