Growing tension between Bill Belichick and Tom Brady explored in ESPN report

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft shown at a game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards Friday

But now, cracks are beginning to show thanks to an ESPN report courtesy of Seth Wickersham.

The surprising trade that took place just ahead of the National Football League trade deadline came out of nowhere.

It's important to note the Patriots' response to the story, via ESPN.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Would Pick LeBron James 1st as All-Star Captain
For the guards , Curry is followed by the Houston Rockets' James Harden (602,040) and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (438,469). There are still 11 more days left in the All-Star voting , which will conclude on January 15 at 11:59 p.m.

Brady also took issue with a reporter who asked whether the quarterback and Belichick had talked about an adjustment to Guerrero's access to the team.

Following the move, Belichick uncharacteristically explained the reasoning behind the deal suggesting that it wasn't something he wanted to do but had to do.

But after a half-day meeting, Belichick was ordered to trade Garoppolo, keep Brady and draft another quarterback to succeed Brady. But Brady nearly forcing the Patriots to stick with him, as Belichick may see it, is unsettling.

The iPhone X Is Reportedly Struggling To Meet Apple's Sales Targets
However, it has now emerged Apple is honouring the discount, even for customers whose batteries pass an in-store diagnostics test. This welcome clarification comes just days after Apple began offering battery replacements earlier than expected.

There are other layers in the story to peel, such as Brady's training, the trade that sent Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers, how much longer Brady will continue to play, Belichick's toughness and more. Belichick was not pleased and compared the Patriots to the Browns by saying neither team had a long-term solution at quarterback.

The three released a joint statement Friday hours after an ESPN report, citing undisclosed sources, detailed an array of tension. 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.

The statement says the three have had a "very good and productive working relationship" for 18 years and they regret having to "respond to these fallacies".

Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch to retire; Romney could run
Hatch's move likely clears the way for Mitt Romney , the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, to run for the seat. But he reversed course and repeatedly insisted to reporters that he "intended" to seek re-election.

This week, ESPN released a report about the state of the New England Patriots after what has been a usual, but odd regular season for the franchise, especially after some of the moves and trades which they made.
