Tom Brady Abruptly Ends WEEI Interview After Questions About Alex Guerrero
Tom Brady on Monday cut his weekly radio interview with WEEI short after the quarterback was asked about his trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero.
Guerrero traveled to North Carolina on the Patriots team plane ahead of Friday night's preseason game with the Carolina Panthers.
Traveling with the team was one of several privileges coach Bill Belichick revoked from Guerrero last December.
Guerrero having a seat aboard Air Kraft is notable given that his restricted access to the team was one of the issues that contributed to the reported rift between Brady and Belichick.
During his phone interview with "Kirk & Callahan," Brady was asked about Guerrero flying with the team.
Kirk Minihane: "What changed in him not being on the team plane last year and this year? Was that just communication back and forth, or was that an understanding of other things? What led that to being able to happen this year?"
Tom Brady: “Yeah, I am not getting into all that.”
Minihane: "OK, when I ran into him at the Super Bowl last year in Minneapolis, I remember talking to him at the time — when I talked to him there, he had said in his opinion that all this stuff had been overblown, and he and [Bill] Belichick had a pretty good relationship even then. Would you say that is true?"
Brady: “I said I don’t want to get into it. … Everyone knows, it is well-documented the work he and I do together.”
Minihane: "I understand that. I am just trying to figure out because I saw the reports this weekend that he’s traveling with the team. Was he on the sideline Friday?"
Brady: “Yeah. All right, guys. Have a great day. I’ll talk to you later.”
