Tom Brady ended his weekly interview with WEEI’s Kirk & Callahan early after repeated questions about his personal trainer Alex Guerrero. The line of questioning started about whether Guerrero traveled to Charlotte on the team plane.
Brady indicated that his trainer had in fact gone to Charlotte with him, but he was unwilling to answer any questions beyond that. When he was asked another question after saying he didn’t want to talk about it, he hung up.
Here is the transcript of the part of the exchange that ended the call, via WEEI:
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?
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.”
Sounds like it’s a touchy subject for the NFL’s MVP. Salty Tom Brady is back. There has to be something to the rumors of tension between the Patriots and Brady over his trainer.
