FOXBORO -- Robert Gallery retired on Saturday while in the middle of Patriots training camp. On Sunday, Bill Belichick had nothing but good things to say about the veteran offensive lineman. And as usual, one player leaving camp means an opening for another.
"Unfortunately, if one player goes out, then it creates an opportunity for somebody else," said Belichick before Sunday's session. "That's what there'll be, opportunities for other players.
"I've talked to Robert several times in the last few days," added Belichick. "He made that decision. I respect it. He's a good player, had a good career. I'm sorry it didn't work out this year. But I understand it. We'll just move on. He worked hard while he was here. He did everything we asked him to do."
