RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Bill Belichick says the Washington Redskins were almost his "second home" during his first NFL season as a low-level assistant with the Baltimore Colts.
It seems Ted Marchibroda didn't change a thing after going from Redskins offensive coordinator to Colts head coach in 1975, so Belichick was put in a charge of whiting-out 'Washington Redskins' and typing in 'Baltimore Colts' on every page of the playbook.
Belichick gets a look at the modern-day Redskins this week.
His New England Patriots joined Washington on Monday for the start of three days of joint practices ahead of their preseason game Thursday.
Belichick says there are things he can learn from how the Redskins practice, even though they have a rookie head coach.
