Following the trade of Jimmy Garoppolo last week, NBC's Ryan Burr, who covers golf for the network, reported a few things regarding Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Burr tweeted: "Brady camp 3 days ago felt privately TB could be traded by Bill after 17. This was a Kraft decision to make it clear Brady finishes as a Pat." He also added Brady's relationship with Belichick is "not great" and all his loyalty is to Robert Kraft.

On Kirk & Callahan on Monday, Brady responded to the report.

“I don’t even know who my camp is," Brady said before getting into his relationship with Belichick.

“I think it’s the way it has always been," he said. "I think he is a great coach and there is obviously no coach I would rather play for. I love playing for this team and I’ve tried to do it for a long time and I have done it for a long time. I enjoy doing it and hopefully I can do it for a long time.”

On a conference call last week, Belichick implied he's treating a 40-year-old Brady year-to-year at this point and the quarterback didn't seem to take issue with that.

“I think every player is year-to-year in the NFL," he said. "Any player, any coach. I don’t know. Anything changes year-to-year. I think we have learned that about the NFL. Something seems great and maybe it’s not. Someone is gone and someone is there. Referees change. Training staffs change. Everything changes in the NFL all the time. I don’t think change is out of order. If any player or coach — it’s just the NFL.

"I think you have to be able to adapt to change and who is able to adapt to the change usually has the best season and the most successful season. Things change over the course of the season. Injuries change and situations change in the game. I think so much is adaptability and you have to adapt and still focus on what is in your control and what you bring to the table in order to be successful day-after-day, week-after-week, year-after -year. We see teams that do so well one year and don’t do well the next year. Our team has been so consistent, and I think we have done a great job of adopting to who is there, what situation we are in. It doesn’t look great from week-to-week, but ultimately the goal is to win the game and we have done a pretty good job of doing that."
