UPDATE: Russini has cleared up her tweet:


Just hours before Tom Brady and Bill Belichick lead the New England Patriots into Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles, ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen dropped a bombshell on the quarterback/head coach combo’s status in the league.

Later in the show, Adam Schefter confirmed it’s not a sure thing Brady returns next season, but “most people” believe it will happen.

He also later noted Belichick is “expected” to return next season as well.

The reported rift between Brady and Belichick took over NFL headlines in early January, but all seemed to be well in the leadup to their playoff run.

The story went that Brady forced the trade of Jimmy Garoppolo and went above Belichick’s head to get it completed. The PatriotsKraftBrady and Belichick all released statements in the coming days talking about unity, expected to return the next season and downplaying any issues in the locker room.

This story doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon.
