       FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) _ New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick broke his silence Wednesday four weeks after former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder.


        Belichick says the Patriots will learn from ``this terrible experience,'' and that it's time for New England to ``move forward.''


        Team owner Robert Kraft has said he was ``duped'' by Hernandez. Tom Brady and the team's other five captains are scheduled to speak with reporters on Thursday when training camp opens. The first practice is set for Friday.


        Hernandez has pleaded not guilty after being arrested and charged on June 26 in the shooting death of Boston semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd on June 17. Lloyd's body was found in an industrial park near the North Attleborough home of Hernandez.


        ``We'll continue to evaluate the way that we do things, the way that we evaluate our players and we'll do it on a regular basis,'' Belichick said. ``I'm not perfect on that, but I always do what I think is best for the football team.''
