Bill Belichick walks off again after Antonio Brown questions

FOXBORO — Another Antonio Brown allegation of misconduct. Another walk-off from Bill Belichick during his media session Friday.

Already, the Patriots coach is getting annoyed with having to answer to every report of bad behavior from his receiver.

The latest has Brown reportedly sending text messages to a woman who had made an allegation of misconduct against Brown in an SI article, supposedly to deter her from making an official allegation by using intimidation and harassment.

Belichick began his press conference acknowledging he was aware of the recent situation.

“I know there are questions about Antonio Brown. We take all the situations with our team very seriously,” he said. “There are some things we’re looking into. I’m not going to comment on any of the off the field situations or take questions on that.”

He walked out seven questions later. The presser lasted 3 minutes, 10 seconds. It was the second time Belichick has walked out. He did the same right after the Patriots signed Brown, and he met the media after the civil lawsuit was filed against the receiver for sexual assault and rape.

First asked if the off-field accusations with respect to Brown complicate his ability to coach him, Belichick replied: “When we work on football, we work on football.”
