Belichick denies Aaron Dobson mouthed off to Josh McDaniels

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick denied a Boston Globe report that said that wide receiver Aaron Dobson was deactivated for "mouthing off" to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

Dobson has been inactive the past two games after catching 37 passes last season as a rookie.

“In my year and a half with Aaron Dobson, he has always been respectful to me and to the rest of the coaching staff,” the statement read. “He has never once been argumentative or confrontational. The suggestion and reporting that his playing time was in any way the result of a ‘loud disagreement’ with a coach is completely false.”
