Tom Brady cuts short WEEI interview over questions about Alex Guerrero
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady ended his Monday morning interview with WEEI’s “Kirk & Callahan” over questions about his trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero.
Here is the exchange between Brady and host Kirk Minihane:
Minihane: “We saw the reports this weekend that Alex was on the team plane, which he wasn’t for the second half of last year, I guess, and not on the sideline. Is that accurate?”
Brady: “Yeah, he was with me this last week, so it was — yeah.”
Minihane: “So 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 to that being able to happen this year?”
Brady: “You know, I don’t wanna — I’m not getting into all that.”
Minihane: “OK. Yeah, when I ran into him at the Super Bowl last year in Minneapolis, I remember talking about it at the time when I talked to him there, he had said, in his opinion, that all the stuff had been overblown, that he and [coach Bill] Belichick had a pretty good relationship even then. Would you say that was true?”
Brady: [pauses] “I said I don’t want to get into it.”
Brady: “I mean, everybody knows it’s well-documented, you know, the work he and I do together.”
Minihane: “No, I know. I understand that. I’m just trying to figure out because I saw the reports this weekend that he’s traveling with the team. Was he on the sideline on Friday?”
Brady: “Yeah. Alright, guys, have a great day. I’ll talk to you later.”
The interview lasted just over six minutes.
