Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Robert Craft are still in the center of all NFL events. The training camp will begin within a week, and the Patriots football will have a nice fresh start. But, what about all the cracks in the foundation of the Patriots dynasty?
According to Greg Bedard, Brady, Belichick and Kraft still have to make things work. It seems like some of the rumors too serious to be ignored, and maybe we’ll know more if any of them decides to speak up.
“According to multiple sources, nothing has been hashed out between the three of them, at least at this time. That could certainly change as they come off vacation and ready for the season. But sources say the more likely scenario is that things are worked out slowly during camp — or not at all,” Bedard explained.
“Belichick continues to be irritated that Kraft has increasingly interjected himself into areas that were largely Belichick’s domain during his tenure with the Patriots. That includes the owner’s deference to Brady and his role in the retention of Josh McDaniels,” he added.
This is exactly the opposite of what Robert Kraft said in the offseason at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando. He was asked about the get-together that was scheduled for the end of the season.
“We’ve had the meeting. Just to be clear, I don’t know if things sort of, it’s like we have meetings all the time. We’re not a big bureaucratic organization. We’re a private company. We don’t have boards. We answer to the fans the best we can. We met. I meet individually with each of them. The thing that I don’t know know if it’s completely understood that Bill and Tom communicate and meet a lot and spend a lot of time communicating,” Kraft said in March.
Well, maybe they will find a way to solve any existing issues.
