On Tuesday evening, Belichcik discussed what Sanu brings to the table during his weekly interview on WEEI’s “Ordway, Merloni & Fauria.”

“Well, I think we are working through that,” said Belichick of introducing Sanu to the Patriots’ system. “We’ll put him in and see how it goes. He’s a talented player. He’s got a lot of experience. He’s done different things, so we’ll see how it all fits for us.”

Belichick said that he doesn’t get too involved in the trade rumors, leaving much of it to Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio.

“I talk to him when things get I would say relevant,” Belichick said of Caserio. “There is a lot of talk. That is part of football.”
