BILL Belichick’s time as head coach of the New England Patriots continues to come into question as an NFC team emerges as a potential landing spot.
The Washington Commanders are reportedly a “real” contender to land the 71-year-old six-time Super Bowl-winning head coach if he decides to leave the Patriots.
Belichick has spent the past 24 seasons as the head coach of the Patriots, leading them to multiple playoff wins and championships with Tom Brady as his QB.
“Bill Belichick to the Commanders, Why not?
“I’m here to report. Bill Belichick to the Commanders’ stuff is real.
“It’s real baby. It could happen. I’m not making this up,” Sollenberger said.
Sollenberger is one of many media people who reported that Belichick to the Commanders is a legitimate possibility.
On Tuesday, NFL reporter Albert Breer appeared on the Dan Patrick Show and connected Washington to Belichick.

“The Washinton stuff has been out there for a while. It is something being talked about in NFL circles,” Breer shared.
And on Wednesday, longtime NFL reporter Benjamin Allbright took to social media to report that Washington’s ownership was interested in trading for Belichick.
Belichick has struggled since Brady’s departure to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and retirement — things have seemingly gone from bad to worse as reports suggest his departure could be looming.
He has coached in the NFL since 1975 and got his first head coaching job in 1991; he has 300 career wins and is 28 victories away from breaking Don Shula’s record.
