Bill Belichick announced a very different new signing for the New England Patriots

Published Add your comment

The New England Patriots have made a very encouraging start to the 2016 NFL season.

The Foxboro-based franchise managed to deal with Tom Brady's suspension perfectly, putting themselves in a great position to make a run at the Playoffs and another Super Bowl appearance with their record standing at 5-1, good enough for first in the AFC East.

But it looks like Bill Belichick is still looking to improve the Patriots and has announced a new signing for the team, well sort of. 

During his press conference earlier today, Belichick took the time to announce that he had become a grandfather for the first time, and did it in the most Belichick way possible.

"We have a roster addition to announce this morning, which is a little different than the usual one. The emphasis would be on little," the veteran head coach said.

"We can add newborn Blakely Rose to the depth chart. She was born this morning to my son Steve and the real MVP, Jen. So this is a happy and exciting day for all of us."

Steve Belichick is on the Patriots coaching staff and has been for five seasons now. He is currently working as a safeties coach. It remains to be seen whether or not Mini-Belichick will ever take to the field.

In a very joking turn, the Patriots head coach was asked about the new baby's measurable and where she would be playing. See, Belichick does have a softer side. He's not just some sort of football robot.
