While the New England Patriots are not playing in Wild Card Weekend, the potential rift between owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, and quarterback Tom Brady is making them a story. The Pats are so much of a story, in fact, that Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas offered his take on the situation.

A Twitter follower asked Thomas why he thought Garoppolo was sent to the San Francisco 49ers. Thomas gave a detailed take.

Some points are worth considering.

One is that Kraft has denied the report that he forced the Garoppolo trade. Whether you believe that or think it’s just a PR statement is up to you. But it is worth noting.
