The New York Jets drafted safety Calvin Pryor in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft because of his ability to deliver the pain to unsuspecting opponents.
It turns out that, for Pryor at least, that skill is transferable away from the football field and in to interviews with the New York media.
Pryor spoke to Steve Serby of the New York Post and the topic of Tom Brady, his suspension, and the DeflateGate saga were brought up. Pryor did not go easy on the New England Patriots quarterback to say the least.
Suspension Wasn't Enough
“I don’t think it was enough punishment, honestly,” Pryor told The Post at the start of what would become a very bold interview.
’Cause you win a Super Bowl, and you can’t really say you won it because all you hear about is Deflategate. Take it how you want to take it. We don’t like the Patriots no way, so … ”
“They gave him four games, it is what it is,” Pryor added. “We’re going to have to face ’em either way it goes, so I look forward to it.”
Brady is missing the first four games of the 2015 season after he was found by an independent investigation to have been complicit in the act of deflating football that the Patriots were using during the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Brady had a pass intercepted by D'Qwell Jackson who noticed the ball was a bit flat and took it to the Colts sidelines. Everything went from there and here we are today, with two Patriots locker room workers being fired and their star quarterback missing the start of the season as they look to defend the Super Bowl they won after a miracle play from Malcolm Butler.
