Bill Belichick just wrapped up his morning session with the media, and we just spend about 40 minutes in the locker room. Here are a few quick notes.
•Belichick touched on a wide range of topics, including the specifics behind the waiver process on Saturday, whether or not the first and second team defense needs more time before the start of the regular season, the process of making cuts (he called it “one of the least fun parts of the job”), the goals for the final preseason game, the use of the defensive communication system and Dom Capers’ influence on the Patriots.
•It was a slow day in the locker room, with only a handful of players making an appearance. Mike Vrabel, LaMont Jordan Sammy Morris and Kevin Faulk were among the players drawing big crowds. Vrabel talked about wearing the green dot on his helmet as part of the defensive communication system — we’ll have more on that later.
•On the injury front, defensive back Brandon Meriweather and offensive linemen Stephen Neal and Matt Light were all seen walking through the locker room. They all politely declined interview requests.
