FOXBOROUGH – The reports of a rift at One Patriots Place are not something that was on Tom Brady’s radar screen. “I have no reaction,’’ the quarterback said after Saturday morning’s two-hour camp practice wrapped up when asked about the reports of turmoil between he, coach Bill Belichick, and owner Robert Kraft. Brady, speaking publicly for the first time this offseason, abruptly ended the five-minute session after being asked what his reaction was to people linking Julian Edelman’s suspension to his business partner, Alex Guerrero. “I have no comment,’’ he said. “That’s just ridiculous. I’m out. See you guys.’’ Brady touched on a number of subjects, including the return of offensive Josh McDaniels (“He’s one of my best friends … I’m glad he’s on our team.’’), his offseason family time, and how he feels entering his 19th season. “It’s been good … [Read more...] about Tom Brady isn’t interested in talking about reported rift or Alex Guerrero

A photo of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in full pads throwing a pass was posted to his verified Instagram account on Wednesday with the caption “Dreamworks’’ followed by a sparkling emoji and the peace sign emoji. It is unclear when the photo was taken. Brady has not attended the team’s workouts this week, by all accounts, and teams cannot practice in full pads at this point anyway. According to the team, there was no practice scheduled Wednesday. The Patriots’ first mandatory practices of the offseason are a three-day minicamp June 5-7 that team owner Robert Kraft said Brady is “very excited about.’’ The photo could be a little reminder that Brady is doing his part on his own time to make the dream work. (As the saying goes, teamwork makes the dream work.) It could also serve as a reminder that the quarterback has not been in Patriots practice gear with his team yet this offseason. Maybe Brady posted it to troll all those who are … [Read more...] about What’s up with the photo posted on Tom Brady’s Instagram today?
Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan says working with quarterback Tom Brady and “his guy” has changed his career. Speaking to host Sean Delaney during a recent episode of the podcast, “What Got You There with Sean Delaney,” Hogan explained how practicing what Brady preaches has altered his training regimen for the better. The 30-year-old didn’t explicitly mention the TB12 Sports Therapy Center at Patriots Place or Brady’s body engineer, Alex Guerrero, but he gave a not-so-subtle shoutout to “the facility they have up there with Brady” and “his guy.” “I mean, it’s changed my career,” Hogan said. “It really has. I’ve really bought into what he talks about and pliability and keeping everything fresh, and it really has. I do it every single day — sometimes twice a day. I don’t think I could play without it anymore. It’s amazing.” Hogan told Delaney he used to be “a big … [Read more...] about Chris Hogan on Tom Brady: ‘I’ve really bought into what he talks about’
Tom Brady has yet to sign a contract extension with the Patriots, but owner Robert Kraft says both he and the quarterback are OK with that. “He’ll be 41 when the season starts,” Kraft told The Athletic‘s Jeff Howe. “Neither side has an issue with it. If it becomes an issue, we’ll deal with it.” Brady is currently signed through the 2019 season, but he reportedly would “most certainly entertain” contract negotiations. The five-time Super Bowl champion, who turns 41 years old in August, typically signs an extension with two seasons remaining on his contract. His past deals also often take place before the start of free agency — to lessen his cap hit, which stands at its a career-high $22 million. Kraft told Howe the two sides are ready to mobilize and re-ignite contract negotiations should the opportunity present itself. Although Brady has previously expressed a desire to play through his mid-40’s, the ominous finish … [Read more...] about Robert Kraft shed light on Tom Brady’s contract situation
Despite falling just short of a second straight Super Bowl in February, the Patriots last season ended up defined by the reported growing tension between Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and owner Robert Kraft — a development detailed at length in the bombshell ESPN report released in January. Specifically, the fractured relationship between Brady and Belichick stemmed from disagreements over the involvement of Alex Guerrero, Brady’s personal trainer who co-owns the TB12 Therapy Center. And apparently, those conflicts about Guerrero weren’t limited to just Brady and Belichick. According to the Boston Herald, Belichick “chastised” tight end Rob Gronkowski early last season in front of teammates for continuing to train with Guerrero. ESPN reported in January that Belichick had significantly decreased Guerrero’s role with the team at some point last season, which stoked the flames of the discord in Foxborough. Previously, Guerrero was so involved in the … [Read more...] about Rob Gronkowski using Tom Brady’s trainer got Patriots TE on wrong side of Bill Belichick: report
