Although it wasn’t straightforward, Bill Belichick did offer some insight on what Alex Guerrero’s role could possibly be with the New England Patriots.

Last season, Guerrero lost his privileges to travel with the team; but Tom Brady’s trainer made headlines once again on Friday when he joined the team on their trip to take on the Carolina Panthers.

Monday proved to be even more interesting on the topic of Guerrero.

Earlier in the day, pressing questions about the situation surrounding his trainer led Tom Brady to quickly cut off his interview on WEEI’s “Kirk and Callahan” show.

Later in the day, head coach Bill Belichick touched based on the situation on WEEI’s “Ordway, Merloni and Fauria.”

“He’s not a member of the organization,” Belichick said. “He works at TB12. I think we’re all aware of that. We have people in our traveling party, some are in the organization, most are, and some aren’t. We have people in various capacities that work with us on gameday, and again, every team has that. We have that too.”

“Again, you need some extra people on gameday. Video department, there could be specialty people on the medical staff, security and so forth. We have other people who are – some are full-time, some are, let’s call it, gameday-type employees because of just higher demands of certain areas on gameday.”

Regardless of what’s going on here, it seems as though Guerrero may have some sort of privileges back. But what is clear is that no one really wants to talk about it.
