For most NFL teams, today marks the start of off season team activities (also known as OTAs). One player who is missing from their team's OTA's today is reigning league MVP and five time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady. In past season, Brady has been at these team activities, training camp and other team functions. Why is the forty year old not at day one of this year's OTA's? Some fans and writers are speculating that it may involve inter-conflict within the Patriots organization.  Back in January ESPN published an article  detailing a possible rift between Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft. Retirement seems unlikely for Brady as last month he indicate that he would be back for the 2018 season for the Patriots.

Do you believe it is an issue for the New England Patriots that Tom Brady is not at OTA's today? Let us know below.
