Kraft told Sports Illustrated that Belichick "absolutely" will be coaching the Patriots in the 2018 season, dismissing any notion of parting ways with the veteran coach. After all, it was only 20 years ago that Bill Parcells was on his way out of Foxborough, and his job coaching for Patriots owner Robert Kraft, even when he had the Patriots on their way to a Super Bowl.
It comes just days after ESPN released a report by Seth Wickersham detailing tension within the New England Patriots organization, including some disconnect between Brady and head coach Bill Belichick.
New England ultimately sent Garoppolo to San Francisco for the 49ers' second-round pick. "I think he was able to capture the essence of my off-field life and the love I have for the game of football and my family".
"I have thought for many years how cool it would be to show fans other aspects of my life and interact with them in a different way", Brady said in a prepared statement. "We know there's a lot at stake and I think everyone's put a lot into it".
"I have never been traded or released, but I can imagine how that might feel". I am exhausted of the rants about Alex Guerrero, Tom Brady, and Bill Belichick, and about the intrigue over Jimmy Garoppolo, Brady, Belichick, and Robert Kraft.
"I talked to guys who played for [his] team. I have no doubt that his focus will be on what it needs to be on this week, like it always is, and he'll have a great week of preparation and practice and be ready to go on Saturday night".
"I have a great relationship with both Robert and Tom", Belichick said. I kept in touch with basically everybody. They are going to face off against the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, and it will not be an easy win by any stretch of the imagination.

Gronkowski, healthy this season after missing last year's Super Bowl-winning run, said such "noise" will "if anything it's just going to bring us closer and it's going to bond us together".
"The reputation that Coach tries to get us to have is just ignore the noise - ignore the noise from the outside and I feel like that's what myself and a lot of other players have been doing".
He also is 6-0 against Mike Mularkey-coached teams. "When he's done, I'll be done, too".
Here's the best part: "I said last summer that Bob (Kraft) and I will sit down at the end of the year and discuss the future".
On allegedly not being awarded "Patriot of the Week" by Belichick... "I learn an terrible lot from watching him, watching his defenses and watching the way that he does things".
I don't know, you don't know, Rex Ryan doesn't know.
