Transcript: Bill Belichick Media Availability 5/23

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick addresses the media following OTAs at Gillette Stadium on Thursday, May 23, 2019.

BB: Alright, so it's good to get out on the field. Obviously, it's been a productive spring for us, a productive week. We were able to do some down and distance work here, work in the red area so that was good and we'll just keep moving on next week. Obviously, want to wish the Bruins well in their Stanley Cup Final, proud of what they're doing and wish them the very best in this next series. I know they've played great but this will be a great opportunity for them and we'll be here cheering them on. But back to football, we've got a long way to go but we're just grinding it out here one day at a time and we'll see how it goes.

Q: While we're talking Bruins, did they reach out to you?

BB: We're behind them so we hope they do well and we're behind the Red Sox, behind the Celtics, behind the Bruins. So we're behind everybody and they've been behind us so it's been great.

Q: Can you talk about the return of Jamie Collins and what you like about having him back in the mix?

BB: It's good to have all the players that are here. We have some new players, we have some players that are returning from being with other teams, Brandon [Bolden], Jamie. So all the guys that are here, we're glad they're here. We'll work with them and see how it goes.

Q: How would you evaluate Jarrett Stidham's performance today?

BB: We've got a long way to go. There's a lot of learning here for everybody so we'll just take it day by day. Hopefully everybody can learn from their experience today and it will make them better all next week.

Q: What has stood out to you in terms of N'Keal Harry's approach since he's been here?

BB: It's been good, he's worked hard. He's smart and works hard.

Q: What do you see from him from a physical makeup standpoint at that position?

BB: He's got a good skillset. We'll take it day by day. He's working hard to get better and I'm sure he will.

Q: Have you spoken to Jon Bon Jovi since he received his honorary doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania?

BB: Not recently, not yet.

Q: I imagine you support that he's now an official Ivy League doctor?

BB: Yeah, absolutely. We've got a lot of doctors in the house, got a couple on this team we added, too.

Q: Who's that?

BB: The McCourtys [Devin and Jason McCourty].

Q: Have you gotten a doctorate?

BB: Yeah, I've got three. Barely got through undergrad.
