Bill Belichick is getting praised for an "outstanding gesture" during the middle of the NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana this afternoon.

On Sunday, Belichick stopped by the NFL Network booth to hand analyst Rich Eisen a check in support of his RunRichRun charity drive for St. Jude's Childre's Hospital. The initial tweet by NFL insider Field Yates has quickly gone viral.

Eisen, a 49-year-old man who never played professional sports, runs the 40-yard dash in his full suit every year as part of his charity effort. He has run the 40 in under six seconds in three of his last five attempts.

NFL Network quickly praised Belichick for his gesture, as did Eisen himself.

Belichick has been making his presence known throughout the NFL Combine.

He has been seen conversing with his former defensive assistant and current Lions head coach Matt Patricia as well as rival head coach Adam Gase of the New York Jets.

Belichick won his sixth Super Bowl ring as a head coach and his eighth overall with last month's win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

Suffice it to say, that Super Bowl win likely came with a hefty bonus that he can spend at his leisure. And what a lovely way to spend it!
