Even though the Patriots have distanced themselves from Alex Guerrero, Tom Brady’s TB12 body coach and business partner’s name is still circling around New England. This time, though, it’s in connection with Julian Edelman’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

During a media session with players on Friday, a reporter asked Brady about the possible connection between the PED suspension and Guerrero’s handling of Edelman’s ACL rehabilitation. The five-time Super Bowl champion immediately shot that question down, saying, “No comment. It’s ridiculous. I’m out.”

Immediately after making that brief statement, Brady walked off. Indeed, that presser didn’t last long.

Guerrero expressed his disappointment about Edelman’s suspension via a statement last month, saying he doesn’t condone using banned substances. However, he still praised Edelman, calling the two-time Super Bowl Champion “a phenomenal athlete who takes his training seriously.”

“Elite athletes sometimes work with multiple coaches and health professionals as part of their training. Here at our facility, we take a natural, holistic, appropriate and, above all, legal approach to training and recovery for all of our clients. And anyone who would suggest otherwise is irresponsible, and just plain wrong.”

Guerrero worked with Edelman during his rehabilitation process to recover from an ACL injury that cut short his 2017-2018 season. In fact, he praised Guerrero by calling him “Mr. Miyagi” in an Instagram post.

It’s evident Guerrero doesn’t want his name associated with this suspension. It’s not, however, out of the realm of possibility that Guerrero is connected with the suspension. But you won’t get any information from Brady, so don’t waste your time by asking him.
