Bill Belichick is a Patriot. And not just because he's paid to be.
The New England coach wore a Nate Ebner rugby jersey during training camp practice on Tuesday, when Ebner made his debut with Team USA against Argentina.

Belichick and several Patriots staffers wore the shirts for Ebner, one of the team's better special teams players. They also gave players a break from practice to watch the game.
Ebner, who is also a backup safety for Belichick's, scored a try in the Americans' 26-0 blowout of Brazil in the rugby sevens tournament.
