A source tells Mike Giardi some Patriots "don't feel appreciated," and Bill Belichick is making "planet players" (such as Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski) miserable.

The news doesn't come as a total surprise. It's no secret there was tension within the Patriots organization throughout the 2017 season. 

Giving Gronk a raise might solve some issues there, but it remains to be seen whether things can be fixed for other players who don't feel appreciated.
