Bill Belichick met with the media a day before Patriots players were expected to, and two days before the start of training camp. The expectation (and hope) was that he would in some way address the Aaron Hernandez situation; what went into the decision to release him and how it could all impact the team. He did exactly that.
Belichick admitted that the organization is re-evaluating the way it evaluates draft prospects. Not to be the cynic here, but this is all political, because the only regret here is signing Hernandez to all of that guaranteed money at the start of last season, not knowing he might've been homicidal. But sports is a bottom line business and the Patriots snagged a first-round talent with a fourth-round pick and helped them form the most dynamic tight end combination in the league.
