Patriots | Bill Belichick talks up Dane Fletcher

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said Monday, Oct. 3, that LB Dane Fletcher has progressed nicely in his second season. "I think Dane's taken a big jump from where he was last year," Belichick said. "Last year he came in as really a defensive lineman, and made an impact for us in the kicking game. But this year, he came in and played inside linebacker right from the beginning of the year. He's way ahead of where was last year." Fletcher might see an increase in playing time with LB Jerod Mayo (knee) sidelined for an extended period.
