Tom Brady: Still business as usual with Bill Belichick following Alex Guerrero situation

On Friday, for the first time Tom Brady addressed the Boston Globe story this week, which reported his body coach Alex Guerrero has been banned from team flights and the sidelines during games by Bill Belichick.

Additionally, only Brady can work with Guerrero inside his private room at Gillette Stadium. All other players need to go to the TB12 Sports Therapy Center at Patriot Place.

Brady got testy with a reporter when asked what his reaction was when Belichick told him what was happening with Guerrero, and he didn't give much insight as to exactly what was happening.

While he still didn't divulge deep into the subject, Brady went into a little more detail Saturday with Jim Gray on Westwood One Sports.

“Well, from my perspective I have had such great success working with Alex over the years," Brady said. "It is why we started our sports therapy center. I think there’s a lot of players on our team who have had great success working with him, too. In his dealings with me, the way I see it, nothing has really changed.”

The Globe report also speculated there may be friction between he and Belichick, but Brady dismissed that claim when asked if it is still business as usual between the two.

“Yeah, very much so," Brady said. "We have a great working relationship and we have since I came into the league. Our focus is on winning games and that is what we are both trying to do. I think that is why we have gotten along so well for this many years."

The 40-year-old also said the situation would not impact what he does on the field.

“No, I don’t think this changes anything on the field," Brady said. "I am a professional, Alex is a professional. I am going to work as hard as I can, as I always have to try and help us win games.”

The Patriots will host the Bills Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
