Brady, Belichick and Kraft Say There’s No Rift Between Them
The Patriots leadership responded to a report of rising team tensions.
Early this morning ESPN’s Seth Wickersham published a long report about growing discord between Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and Robert Kraft, the NFL’s winningest trio. Wickersham speculated in the report that tensions were high enough to signal the end of the legendary Patriots core. In response the Patriots Twitter account posted a joint response from Brady, Belichick, and Kraft refuting the report. “In recent days, there have been multiple media reports that have speculated theories that are unsubstantiated, highly exaggerated or flat out inaccurate. The three of us share a common goal,” the statement reads. The report comes a month after a highly-publicized sideline argument between Brady and and long-time offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
