Bill Belichick: Report of meeting with Roger Goodell 'absolutely not true'

Belichick also added a familiar sentence that has become routine talk in New England as he prepares for the team's upcoming game.

On a conference call with the media ahead of Saturday's playoff game with Tennessee Titans in Foxboro, Belichick was asked if he wants to be back with the Patriots amid reports that have linked him to the New York Giants coaching vacancy.

The questions stem from an ESPN report that suggested Belichick was furious when owner Robert Kraft told him to trade quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers.

The team released a statement on Friday saying there was no strife among the franchise's main trio.

Belichick said Monday: "I haven't read the article". Nothing has happened since then. "I'm not really interested in responding to all those random, and I would say in a lot of cases, baseless comments".

Meanwhile, Brady has reportedly grown frustrated by Belichick's increasingly harsh criticism of his play, and the coach's constant negativity, the report said. Kraft also said that he wouldn't consider trading Belichick to another team.

"When you're lucky enough to have someone exceptional, you let them do their job and you get out of the way", Kraft said.

An ESPN.com article last week implied that the situation with the team was so bad, it might be the a year ago that Brady, Kraft, and Belichick will be together. Belichick reluctantly did so, but he has privately fumed over the move because the five-time Super Bowl-winning coach believes he has earned the right to make such team personnel decisions, ESPN reported.
