New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been in the league too long for these type of questions.
The five-time Super Bowl champion will have to start the regular season for the second year in a row without his primary receiver Julian Edelman. To kick off 2018, No. 11 will serve a four-game suspension for violation of the league’s PED substance abuse policy.
It’s no secret that Brady and Edelman train together each offseason including Julian working with Brady’s longtime trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero. Of course, red flags went off with Guerrero once the league handed down Edelman’s suspension, and that prompted the following situation today at Patriot’s camp.

It’s simple, if Brady feels a question is too ridiculous to warrant an answer, he’ll simply pick up his things and just walk away from the podium.
He has to be sick of constantly fielding questions regarding Guerrero after the drama that went on last season with the team. Per reports, there was a fallout with head coach Bill Belichick and Alex that led to his removal from team facilities and then some sort of power struggle between Brady, Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.
Tom Brady addressed reporters after practice. Asked if he has any reaction to people connecting Julian Edelman’s suspension to his trainer Alex Guerrero, and if he thinks it is fair, Brady said, “I have no comment. It is just ridiculous.” He then said, “I’m out. See you guys.” pic.twitter.com/kyzml684cm

The team doesn’t want any distractions this season, especially coming off a tough Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
As a result, No. 12’s reaction today makes it clear he’s had enough of the negative press surrounding the man responsible for keeping him healthy in the NFL for so long.
