New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is making a habit of cordially ending interviews that touch on his body coach and business partner, Alex Guerrero.

Brady: Yeah, he was with me this last week, so it was; yeah.

It was well-documented last season that Bill Belichick banned Guerrero from the sidelines at games and from team flights, but it appears the two sides came to a compromise last week when Guerrero was on the team flight (he is still not allowed on the sidelines, according to multiple reports). Was that just communication back and forth, or was that understanding of other things?

Questions have emerged over the past year-plus about Guerrero's role within the team. What led to that being able to happen this year?

Minihane: OK, when I ran into him at the Super Bowl a year ago in Minneapolis, I remember talking to him at the time - when I talked to him there, he had said in his opinion that all this stuff had been overblown, and he and [Bill] Belichick had a pretty good relationship even then. Would you say that is true?

Minihane: No, I understand that.

O.J. denied he could reveal any details about their murder, contending: "Well, first of all, she wasn't my wife". Sacha Baron Cohen saved pranking one of the most notorious public figures for last, interviewing O.J.

Following a long pause, Brady responded, "I said I don't want to get into it".

"I don't have any comment on that other than to say Alex, it's been well-documented, has been a huge part of what I do and I'm so fortunate to have him not only as a friend, but with everything that we've been able to do together", Brady said late a year ago.

Minihane: OK, when I ran into him at the Super Bowl previous year in Minneapolis, I remember talking about it at the time. "I'm just trying to get clarification".

Pressed if Guerrero was on the sideline Friday night when the Patriots lost to the Carolina Panthers, Brady made a decision to end the interview.

Brady: Yeah, all right, guys.

Even if there has been a compromise between Belichick, Brady and Guerrero, Brady clearly doesn't want to talk about.
