    Bill Belichick addressed the arrest of Aaron Hernandez for the first time since the arrest.

    The Washington Post published a report Thursday saying that former New England Patriots team doctor Thomas Gill altered a player's medical treatment in 2012 to force that player to return a $3.85 million signing bonus.

    The Patriots and the player, defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene, eventually reached a settlement. Gill has denied the allegations contained in the Washington Post story.

    When Patriots Coach Bill Belichick was asked about the report Friday, he said only, "That case has been over for a long time."
