Tom Brady could be disciplined by the NFL after DeflateGate report

Published 33 Comments

The 2015 NFL Draft has come and gone, and with it goes our sanity as we have a new talking point that will dominate the headlines.

Brady Burned

While the Wells report did not prove that the Patriots cheated against the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game, Brady seemed to get a lot of heat from Wells with the QB being said to be “generally aware” of the practice of Patriots staffers deflating balls.

Text messages between locker room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski seem to indicate as such, with Brady's name mentioned multiple times alongside comments of how he 'likes the balls to be' (Soft.)

The report also found that Brady’s claims that he did not know the name and responsibilities of one of them, Jim McNally, until after the investigation began to be “not plausible and contradicted by other evidence.” Brady also refused to turn his phone over to Ted Wells for the investigation.
