On Tuesday, New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady was asked by Peter King of Sports Illustrated (article appeared on King’s new website The MMQB) how the team will proceed without former tight end Aaron Hernandez who in currently on trial for murder. Brady, unsurprisingly, gave the most Bill Belichick answer ever.
I’ve seen a lot of things over 13 years, and what I have learned is that mental toughness and putting aside personal agendas for what’s in the best interest of the team matters most,” Brady said. “My job is to play quarterback, and I’m going to do that the best way I know how, because I owe that to my teammates regardless of who is out there on the field with me. I have moved on. I’m focusing on the great teammates I have who are committed to helping us win games. The only thing I care about is winning. Nothing is going to ever get in the way of that goal. I’m just excited to report to camp and see what we can accomplish as a team. The fate of our season will be determined by the players in our locker room — nothing else
Belichick is set to talk to the media on Wednesday for the first time about Hernandez but I wouldn’t expect him to give more than a couple words for a response.
