Coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots have managed to keep the terms of Belichick’s contract relatively under wraps throughout his tenure in New England. But recent speculation that the 65-year-old could be on the hunt for a new coaching gig — coupled with Jon Gruden’s reported 10-year, $100 million deal with the Oakland Raiders — has generated heightened interest surrounding just how much Belichick earns per year. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Belichick brings home more than $10 million annually. Pro Football Talk corroborated Mortensen’s sources, specifying that Belichick is thought to make $12.5 million per year. Unsurprisingly, both reported figures are considerably higher than Belichick’s estimated payout from his initial contract with the Patriots in 2000. According to the Hartford Courant, Belichick’s first deal in New England was scheduled to average more than $2 million annually over five years.

Legal A bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller is likely to get another vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee if the Russia probe is still going later this winter, new Chairman Lindsey Graham said in an interview on Wednesday. Graham and Sens. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) are reintroducing the bill this week. The Senate Judiciary Committee approved it under former Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), but it will need another committee vote now that the 116th Congress has convened.Story Continued Below The South Carolina Republican said that if the Mueller probe has not concluded in February, he's likely to put the bill up for a vote on the panel. The measure drew the support of four GOP senators last time, though Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) has since retired and been replaced on the committee by senators that are closer to Trump. "Let's see what's going on with Mueller in the next 30-40 days," Graham said. "Institutionally, its a good … [Read more...] about Mueller protection bill likely to get new committee vote
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Elijah Cummings plan to introduce legislation on Thursday aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs for U.S. consumers. FILE PHOTO: Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) speaks after the senate voted on a resolution ending U.S. military support for the war in Yemen on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., December 13, 2018. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts Democrats have been critical of efforts by the Trump administration to bring down drug prices after President Donald Trump promised to do so during his campaign and since being elected. They have said proposals by the administration let big drugmakers off the hook and did not do enough to help Americans. The proposed legislation, which has several co-sponsors among Democrats in the House of Representatives that they now control, and in the Republican-led Senate, is comprised of three bills that aim to curb drug costs. “The United States pays by far the … [Read more...] about Sen.
