Tom Brady has 'had enough' of Bill Belichick, new book claims

According to the book, Brady started worrying for his job when New England drafted Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round of the 2014 draft.

Tom Brady is playing his 19th NFL season under Bill Belichick, and despite their success, is it really all that surprising the two would sour on one another periodically?

According to Ian O'Connor’s new book, "Belichick: The Making of the Greatest Football Coach of All Time," Brady wanted a "divorce" from the Patriots and Belichick this past offseason.

"If you're married 18 years to a grouchy person who gets under your skin and never compliments you, after a while you want to divorce him," a source told O’Connor (via ESPN.com). "Tom knows Bill is the best coach in the league, but he's had enough of him. If Tom could, I think he would divorce him."

According to the book, Brady started worrying for his job when New England drafted Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round of the 2014 draft. Brady's sister, Nancy, is quoted in the book telling others Brady thought “Belichick will definitely do to him someday what the Colts did to Peyton [Manning]."

Three years later, New England traded Garoppolo and Brady, according to O’Connor, was locked into his role with the Pats.

"The moment Belichick moved Garoppolo to San Francisco, and banked on Brady's oft-stated desire to play at least into his mid-forties, was the moment Brady was virtually locked into suiting up next season and beyond,” O’Connor wrote. “Had he retired or requested a trade, he would have risked turning an adoring New England public into an angry mob."

Brady and the Patriots are off to a 1-1 start this season after losing to the Jaguars in Week 2. They travel to Detroit Sunday night to face the Lions.
