News Blitz 7/22: Another Belichick on the job

Bill Belichick is da man in New England football.

But this offseason, the Belichick boys have begun to really take hold in Patriots football as well.

While Steve Belichick has been a familiar face around the team for more than a decade, including the last few years as a coaching assistant, he was elevated to positional coach status this offseason in a role working with the safeties.

Brian Belichick has also been a regular around New England for years, now ESPNBoston.com reports that the youngest Belichick son has taken on an official role as a scouting assistant with the Patriots. The site notes that Belichick is a "graduate of Trinity College, had been seen with the Patriots contingent at the Senior Bowl this year and at spring practices."

ESPNBoston.com also relays that Daniel Debick (John Carroll) and Camren Williams (Ohio State) will serve as scouting assistants this year, while Mike Pellegrino and Cole Popovich will work as coaching assistants.

ESPNBoston.com reports that Joe Cardona has been cleared by the Navy to play with the Patriots this season, which was assumed when the team released backup long snapper Christian Yount this week.

The Boston Globe notes that Rob Gronkowski was well dressed and well received while handing out free ice cream in Boston on Thursday in an event for DraftKings.

Boston Herald columnist Ron Borges says that the eldest Belichick has a dilemma when it comes to divvying up the practice reps at quarterback this summer given the situation with Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo.
