Gasper: Tom Brady felt like he was being phased out in final season with Patriots
98.5 The Sports Hub staff report
WCVB’s Chris Gasper recently corroborated a Gary Myers report that drew controversy on Monday. Myers initially reported in the New York Daily News that Tom Brady and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had experienced a deteriorating relationship. Brady soon refuted the report on Instagram.
“Gary is dead on here. The professional/personal relationship between Brady and McDaniels was more strained than publicly portrayed, a source told me,” the Gasper & Murray co-host tweeted on Tuesday. “Brady found it frustrating that Josh wouldn’t install plays TB12 wanted in the game plan last season. It felt like a phasing out.”
Myers himself joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Zolak & Bertrand on Tuesday to discuss the report, which drew Brady’s direct response on social media. Myers argued that no one would question his report if he revealed his “initial source” on the story.
