Tom Brady comments in support of Malcolm Butler

Tom Brady just used six exclamation points in support of Malcolm Butler. Bill Belichick can't be happy!!!!!!

When Brady liked Malcolm Butler's post denying committing any infractions worthy of his Super Bowl benching, there was reason to not overreact. After all, Brady likes a ton of stuff posted by teammates. Maybe it was just a TB12 employee giving it what is essentially an automatic like. 

Then Brady commented on it. 

Love you Malcolm. You are an incredible player and teammate and friend. Always!!!!!!

This can only further speculation not only about why Belichick benched Butler, but whether Belichick's decision, as Brandon Browner put it, divided the locker room. 

Brady was hardly the only Patriot to show support for Butler. Among those to like the post were several past and present Patriots, including Jimmy Garoppolo.

Gronkowski moves up eight spots to 15th in NFL Network's Top 100

Gronkowski moves up eight spots to 15th in NFL Network's Top 100

Rob Gronkowski has jumped up eight spots in the NFL Network's Top 100 rankings - going from 23rd in 2017 to 15th this year.

Gronkowski was limited to eight games and 25 catches because of back surgery in 2016. The five-time Pro Bowl selection played in 14 games last season with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season and 16 catches, three for TDs, in three postseason games. 

Players ranked 11th through 20th were revealed Monday night. 

Gronk is the first Patriot and highest-ranked tight end in the 2018 Top 100, which is voted on by players. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce checked in at No. 24.

They'll probably be a Patriot quarterback somewhere in the top 10 when it's revealed next week. There was one ranked No. 1 last year.
