Patriots Issue Join Statement Regarding ESPN Piece Released Friday Regarding In House Tension

The Patriots issued a joint statement from owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady on Friday, the day ESPN published a story detailing tension among the three, Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston reports.

“For the past 18 years, the three of us have enjoyed a very good and productive working relationship. In recent days, there have been multiple media reports that have speculated theories that are unsubstantiated, highly exaggerated or flat out inaccurate. The three of us share a common goal. We look forward to the enormous challenge of competing in the postseason and the opportunity to work together in the future, just as we have for the past 18 years. It is unfortunate that there is even a need for us to respond to these fallacies. As our actions have shown, we stand united.”

Don Yee, the agent for both Brady and former Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, also issued a statement regarding the ESPN story on Friday.

“I don’t really know what to say; it’s tough to have a response since it didn’t appear to me to have one on-the-record quote. All I can suggest is don’t believe everything you read,” Yee said.
