Jim Nantz might call it a tradition unlike any other: NFL coaches gather to take a group photo at the annual league meetings, and Bill Belichick opts not to join in the fun.

The Patriots coach was the lone abstainer from this year's picture. Last year both Belichick and Saints coach Sean Payton skipped out on the shoot.
The Twittersphere was abuzz early Monday with the news of Belichick's absence, kicking off three days of meetings and media availability sessions with Belichick as the early focal point.
We're sure he's thrilled.
