FOXBORO -- It seems as though Tom Brady might wish Donald Trump would stop telling everyone that they're such good pals.
On Thursday night, the soon-to-be 45th president of the United States said that Brady was "feeling good" and that Brady called him to congratulate him on the eve of his inaguration. On Friday afternoon, Brady looked uncomfortable at the mention of Trump's name during a press conference at Gillette Stadium.
When Brady was asked about Trump soon after the inauguration ceremony on Friday, he hesitated.
"I don't have much to say," said Brady.
Brady was then reminded that during a dinner for donors in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, Trump mentioned a recent phone call between them, when Brady expressed his support for the new president.
"Umm," Brady said. "Did I call him . . ."
"He said you did," a reporter replied.
"Oh," Brady said. "Let's talk about football."
In other words, as his coach would say, "We've got a big game."
Martellus Bennett is moving on from the game of football.
The former Patriots tight end announced his retirement Friday night on Twitter, stating he is shifting his focus to his multimedia production company, The Imagination Agency.
Bennett, 31, had 55 receptions for 701 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games during the 2016 season with New England. After rejoining the Patriots in 2017, Bennett battled hamstring and shoulder injuries but did play in two games, catching six passes for 53 yards.
Bennett also played with the Cowboys, Giants, Bears, and Packers over the course of his 10-year career.
An arrest has been made in the Super Bowl week burglary at Rob Gronkowski's house.
Foxboro police announced Friday they have arrested 31-year-old Anthony Almeida, who has been charged with breaking and entering, receiving stolen property and malicious destruction of property.
The police also said they are searching for two other suspects, 26-year-old Shayne Denn and 28-year-old Eric Tyrrell.
Items taken from Gronkowski's house in the burglary included an Apple Watch, Rolex, and rare coins from the 1800s. Fortunately, those items have been recovered and Gronk will be getting them back. Police are still searching for the guns that were stolen from the house.
