Belcher told the Bangor Daily News’ Andrew Neff that he hasn’t read many scouting reports on himself and doesn’t pay much attention to the doubts about his size or ability to play at the next level.

Belcher says he hasn’t read many scouting reports on himself. Belcher, who just wants to go to the best team offering the best fit for his talents, hasn’t read many of the scouting reports on himself and doesn’t pay much attention to the doubts about his size or ability to play at the next level.

“I can’t change it. If I could I would, but that just makes me want to work harder.  I don’t like to be satisfied because once you are, you get lazy. If you’re dissatisfied, you keep working harder and harder.  All I know is I’m a versatile player on the field and I can play special teams, any position they want me to, and I’m a character.”

He’s a character?  I like hearing that since this team has been minus the good kind of characters since Jared Allen took off for Minnesota.  Not to mention that Belcher — albeit against weaker competition — had 98 tackles (17.5 for a loss) and 7.5 sacks, so he knows how to find the football.
