Patriots coach Bill Belichick never wants to talk about the past Lamarcus Joyner Jersey
, even if in the past he’s never really talked about the thing from the past that remains a curiosity in the present. To no surprise, then, Belichick declined during his start-of-training-camp press conference to discuss the decision to not use cornerback Malcolm Butler on defense during Super Bowl LII.
Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston points out that Belichick faced a “flurry of necessary questions on Malcolm Butler benching,” and that “Belichick parried with ‘working on this year.'”
