Tom Brady's trainer, Alex Guerrero, has been back in the news of late following reportedly flying to Carolina with the team after being banned from team flights last season. 

The quarterback ended his weekly interview with Kirk & Callahan Monday morning when asked about Guerrero's changed role. Later on in the day, Bill Belichick appeared on Ordway, Merloni and Fauria and expanded a little more on Guerrero's status with the team, but did reiterate he is not part of the organization.

“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.”

Added Belichick: “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.”

Here is video of Guerrero walking into Bank of America Stadium with the team last Friday.
