While other NFL executives spent their weekends throwing record-setting money at mediocre talents like Mitch Morse and Justin Coleman, Bill Belichick was enjoying some time at an exclusive beach resort in Barbados.
It’s the ultimate power move, and something only a man who owns a boat named “VIII Rings” -- probably soon to be "IX Rings" -- can get away with.
The Daily Mail published an extensive photo spread Monday of Belichick and longtime girlfriend Linda Holliday at the Caribbean resort, “Flouters.” During the busiest period of the offseason, it certainly seems like Belichick was enjoying some days off.
Ten years ago, Belichick told NFL Films he doesn’t wish to be the next Marv Levy and coach into his 70s. Since then, he’s won three Super Bowls and been to five. As a result of that success, he’s free to adhere to his own schedule. Last year, he took in a Red Sox Spring Training game during the first day of NFL free agency.
The Patriots seem like they’re running as smoothly as ever.
