Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are missing the start of the Patriots' offseason workouts, and it's clear that they are sending a sign to Bill Belichick with their absences.

Yes, the workouts are "voluntary", but there must be something happening behind the scenes especially for Brady to miss these meetings. "There are some teams where it's not a big deal if guys miss part of the offseason program," Ross Tucker, who played for Bill Belichick in 2005-2006, tweeted. "New England is not one of them."

Whether Brady and Gronk are miffed at the way Belichick has treated their workout guru Alex Guerrero, or there remains a rift that Belichick finally rolled snake eyes in benching Malcolm Butler in the Super Bowl, or the general ego clashing that always tends to crumble sports dynasties, there is something there.
