“He does a real good job of all that, has since he’s been here, coming in as a first-round pick with the expectations and so forth,” Belichick said. “He’s really handled all of that well and has really focused on being a good teammate, doing a good job with what he has to do. He’s been great for us.”
Belichick also touched on how important adaptability is in the NFL and how Michel has that characteristic as well.
“He’s a versatile player that can be involved in all three – actually, all four downs – with a high level of execution in the running game, the passing game and the kicking game,” Belichick said. “We’ll take as many of those guys as we can get.”
