After fifth Super Bowl win, don't expect Belichick to retire soon

After fifth Super Bowl win, don't expect Belichick to retire soon

Tucked in the transcript of Bill Belichick’s introductory press conference was a tiny exchange the likes of which we haven’t seen since that day in 2000.

He hasn’t publicly uttered a word about his contract since. The only times we’ve gotten any news at all about his contract status was in 2007 when, in the days following Spygate, it was reported Belichick signed an extension through 2013.  In 2013, it was reported Belichick had an extension that would keep him in place “a long time,” according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport

So when does Belichick’s current contract run out? Don’t know. And I was told by a source that, at this point, it doesn’t really matter.

Belichick turns 65 in April. The Patriots aren’t going to fire him and he isn’t going to resign to seek another head-coaching opportunity. He’s going to coach until he doesn’t want to coach anymore and then head to Nantucket/Jupiter, Florida.

When will that be?

A win over the Falcons could provide Belichick with a stunning walk-into-the-sunset moment, as he’d be alone at the top with five Lombardi Trophies earned (surpassing Chuck Noll whose Steelers won four for him). But there’s nothing to indicate Belichick’s near done.

My best guess? He’ll wrap it up after the 2019 season, when he’ll be 68 and will have just completed 20 years in New England.

The next Primetime? Carr receives compliment after imitating Neon Deion

Watch out Jalen Richard. You have some competition for your punt returning job.

Okay, not really.

But quarterback Derek Carr got in on the action Tuesday. In a video posted by the Raiders on Twitter, Carr fielded a punt and ran it back to the endzone for a touchdown.

He proceeded to do Deion Sanders' touchdown dance and that elicited a response from the Pro Football Hall of Famer.

"That's 1 of the many reasons why I gots mad love for @derekcarrqb he is the #Truth," Sanders wrote in a quote tweet.

Carr has yet to respond.

Raiders place two on Non-Football Injury List

The Raiders placed two players on the Non-Football Injury List, the team announced on Tuesday.

Linebacker Ben Heeney and tight end Cooper Helfet both count against the 90-man roster.

The Raiders' first team practice of training camp is scheduled for Saturdya.

Heeney was selected in the 5th round of the 2015 draft out of Kansas.

After appearing in 15 games a rookie, he saw action in just four games last season.

Over 23 games for the Seahawks in 2014 and 2015, Helfet caught 25 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns.

He spent time on the Raiders' practice squad last season.
