Patriots coach Bill Belichick made his weekly appearance on sports radio 850 WEEI in Boston today as part of "Patriots Monday" programming. During his interview, Belichick was asked if the Patriots might consider bringing in running back Corey Dillon.
Dillon's agent, Steve Feldman, said on Saturday that Dillon would consider a return if the Patriots were interested.
Belichick explained that he's happy with the four running backs on the roster, and it isn't in the team's plans to add a fifth running back. He added that a key part of the consideration is special teams, as the team has come to rely on the contributions of backs Heath Evans and Kyle Eckel in those areas. Eckel was credited with two special teams tackles Sunday against the Colts.
