It appears the drama surrounding Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady isn't going to go away.

Appearing on NFL GameDay on NFL Network Saturday, Ian Rapoport said the three will have a meeting after the season is over to resolve the tension surrounding the three this season. He also notes Belichick is under contract for several more seasons and Brady will never be traded from New England.

“There is going to be a meeting after the season, whenever the season ends, between Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady to clear the air and get through a lot of this tension that they have had to deal with this season," Rapoport said. "There is tension from the Jimmy Garoppolo trade and who wanted what, to Tom Brady’s trainer (Alex Guerrero) and all of these issues they have battled through this year. My understanding is this is expected to continue past this season.

"First there is Bill Belichick, who is under contract for several more years and Belichick came out and said he absolutely believes that he will be the Patriots coach next year. And from what I understand, I don’t see any situation where Robert Kraft allows anything besides that. Then there is Tom Brady, of course he is also under contract. He is never getting traded from the Patriots. He is going to retire there. It is really on these three guys to come together after the season, figure it out and move forward.”
