Florio: Part of Belichick's pay is to participate

Not many of us have the privilege to eat breakfast with Bill Belichick.

After today, that may not be such a bad thing.

Belichick seemed a bit grumpy on Tuesday at the owners' meetings in Orlando. Perhaps he lost his appetite after a few questions he wasn't too fond of came his way.

On top of that, he didn't show up for the NFL coaches picture either.

We get it Bill, you don't want to be here.

Gary Tanguay and Chris Gasper are joined by guest Mike Florio from NBC's Pro Football Talk, where the three discuss Belichick's antics at the meetings.

Florio says that this is part of the job, and if Belichick doesn't like it, then maybe he should consider another job with less responsibilities.

"Look, there's a ton of respect for a guy who's won three Super Bowls in four seasons," Florio said, "but to have a complete and total disdain with things that go along with having that job - I mean, this is part of what you're expected to do if you're going to make $7 million dollars a year. If Bill Belichick doesn't like that part of the job then he should quit and he should go coach high school lacrosse and he'll get the money that goes along with it and he'll have the obligations on his time away form the field with coaching an obscure sport at an obscure level. That's what it all comes down to. Part of what he's paid for is to participate in the overall publicity and the promotion of the sport and he needs to do what's expected of him."
