The New England Patriots have long been known as somewhat of a shady operation.
Bill Belichick is far from open in his dealings with the media, and don't even get us started on spygate.
And now recently departed pair, Brandon Spikes and Aqib Talib, have added fuel to the fire.
Both players have made claims that the franchise put false information about them on injury reports during their time with the Patriots last season.
Spikes, now with the Buffalo Bills, spent the tail end of last season in the IR list with the Patriots reporting a knee injury.
At the time there were suggestions that his absence was related to a missed practice session rather than an injury and now Spikes has spoken out:
"I heard they put me on IR and stuff like that. That was just a false report.
"That's just how things go there. Almost like what happened with Talib and his hip," he told ESPN.com.
And as for Talib and his hip?
At several points during last season the cornerback was listed on injury reports with a 'hip injury', but since moving to the Broncos this free agency he has refuted the injury:
"The Patriots have their way of reporting stuff, but I haven't had a hip problem since Tampa.
"The injury I had was actually a quad injury, It was reported as a hip injury, but that's how they do things," Talib explained.
The claims may not be groundbreaking, but the NFL are likely to frown upon the revelations and may look to clamp down on the Patriots following a similar path next season.
