Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Friday was asked if he plans to continue his longstanding weekly interview with WEEI’s morning show. Brady didn’t give a definitive answer, but indicated he was leaning toward yes, saying, “I don’t know. I think so.’’
Last week, Brady cut short an interview on “Kirk & Callahan’’ after being asked multiple times about his relationship with his trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero. The question that preceded the hang-up was about if Guerrero was on the sidelines during the Patriots preseason game against the Giants.
“Yeah. Alright, guys, have a great day. I’ll talk to you later,’’ Brady said before ending the interview 6 minutes in.
Kirk Minihane, the host whose questions led to Brady ending the interview, announced on Thursday he was taking an indefinite leave of absence to deal with mental health issues.
Brady on Friday was asked if there have been changes in Guerrero’s availability to him and if he is satisfied with the current arrangement.
“I think Alex and I, we work together. I don’t want really want any drama. I just want to focus on what we want to do and be a great football player for this team,’’ Brady said.
“I know we want to talk about a lot of other things, but I just really want to stick with football and just focus on being the best I can be for this team.’’
Brady was more direct when asked a follow-up question about whether Guerrero is available to him.
“Yeah,’’ Brady said. “I mean, I’m a pretty mentally tough guy, so I’ve dealt with a lot of circumstances over a long period of time, 18, 19 years. I’m excited for the season. I’m excited for where we’re at, where we’re going, what we got to do. There’s a lot of challenges we’re going to face. I want to feel good. I want to be the best quarterback I can be. And that’s a lot of commitment, daily effort.’’
