Tension Brewing Between Guerrero, Patriots

Tension Brewing Between Guerrero, Patriots

Alex Guerrero (left), Tom Brady's trainer, close friend and business partner, is being distanced from the rest of the Patriots. Guerrero helped the decorated quarterback launch the TB12 Center, where Brady and several other Patriots players have trained and received treatment since it opened in 2013.

Head coach Bill Belichick was reportedly the driving force behind the change regarding Guerrero, although he refused to address it during a radio interview for WEEI.

It dates back to two years ago when the Patriots' medical staff complained to Bill Belichick about Guerrero's interference with treatment.

Guerrero collaborated with Brady on a best-selling book released this year, an exercise and nutrition self-help book called "The TB12 Method".

Along with being stripped of special privileges, Guerrero has also been banned from the team plane as well as access to the Patriots' sideline during games, via Hohler. Members of the Patriots training and coaching staff have long held resentment toward him. "I'm not really going to get into that", Belichick said when asked whether he has an issue with Guerrero, adding that he's not aware of any issue between Brady and Guerrero. A rift between Belichick and Guerrero was indicated by ESPN's Seth Wickersham last month and Adam Schefter last week.

Guerrero is now banned from boarding Patriots jets. However, Guerrero is also no longer permitted to treat players other than Brady in his stadium office, per the report.

Guerrero's relationship with the Patriots has been, and still is, relatively unusual by National Football League standards.

Guerrero is godfather to Brady's son, Benjamin.

Recall Belichick's infamous "Mona Lisa Vito" 2015 press conference. Belichick labored mightily to separate "the team" from "the player". Burke said there's a possibility that Belichick might accept the coaching job with the New York Giants [VIDEO].

That's where the friction between Guerrero and Belichick has the greatest potential for incineration. But a distraction with a dubious past whose influence has captivated several of his most important players? With Guerrero effectively involved in the health and training practices of much of the team, it's not unusual for him and the Patriots medical and training staff to differ, according to sources.
