FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick is not quite ready to rejoice after a report that the NFL has come to an agreement with the NFL Referees Association, bringing an end to the tenure of the league's replacement officials.

Instead, Belichick has a laser-like focus on the Buffalo Bills.

"[I'm] just trying to concentrate on getting our team to play Buffalo," Belichick said.

He added that he didn't want to comment on a possible fine for grabbing umpire Ali Shetula after Sunday's 31-30 loss against the Baltimore Ravens.

"I already commented on that the other day," he said. "Whatever the league decides to do, I'll respect it."
