FOXBORO — The G.O.A.T. was P-I-S-S-E-D Friday.
At least he was when asked about the recent report about Bill Belichick severely restricting Alex Guerrero’s access around the Patriots.
Bob Hohler of the Boston Globe reported this week that Belichick had taken away some of Guerrero’s privileges during this season, including banning him from the team plane and not allowing anyone other than Tom Brady to use Guerrero in his Gillette Stadium office. Asked what his reaction was to Bill Belichick telling him that Guerrero wouldn’t be around as much, Brady shot back at the Globe’s Ben Volin.
“I don’t really agree with your question, so I don’t know what you’re talking about. How do you know what he said?” Brady replied.
Volin tried to ask Brady if he was refuting Hohler’s report, but was cut off by the quarterback.
“I’m not saying anything,” Brady said. “How do you say that [Belichick] said anything? You don’t know anything about that.”
Volin once again asked if Belichick had said anything about removing him from team flights and stripping other privileges, at which point Brady finally just declined to share.
“I have a lot of conversations with him,” Brady said. “Those are private between he and I. I don’t think anybody knows what we talk about -- or I’ve never [told anyone] and he’s never talked about it.”
A controversial figure, Guerrero has served as Brady’s personal body coach and has played a major role in Brady’s pliability-oriented workouts. Guerrero’s degree is from a Chinese medicine from a university that has since closed. He has twice been accused of fraud. Other Patriots who work with Guerrero include Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski.
