Friction in Foxborough?

By JACK STANARD

This weekend an ESPN report emerged claiming that there is conflict in the locker room of the New England Patriots. The report stated that the conflict is centered around quarterback Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick, and the team’s owner, Robert Kraft. This report seemed shocking to many, considering that the trio has won five Super Bowls and is looking to add a sixth ┬áthis postseason. Apparently, the conflict occurred after the Patriots traded backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers. Garoppolo ended up playing great in San Francisco and led the team to a 5-0 record to end the season. Despite the reported controversy, Belichick and Kraft have both stated that there is in fact no controversy and that they will both stay in New England at their current positions.
