There has been a lot of speculation about why the New England Patriots traded quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for a second round pick. There has been some suggestion that this resulted from a power struggle between Bill Belichick and Bob Kraft.

ESPN apparently is taking a deep dive into it on Friday. Boston sports media columnist Bruce Allen is reporting the world wide leader will have a “hit piece” on Bill Belichick, Bob Kraft, and Tom Brady. Noted ESPN feature writer Seth Wickersham will apparently break down a power struggle that resulted in Brady went to Kraft to force the trade.

Jason La Canfora already tweeted that we shouldn’t buy into what will be reported, so clearly there are a variety of takes getting pushed out there in advance of all this. I don’t know how it will all play out, but it’s kind of nice being on the outside looking in at this! And Patriots Twitter is going to be a disaster.
