Tom Brady’s agent fires back.
Don Yee says the report prepared by NFL-appointed investigator Ted Wells was "a significant and terrible disappointment."
The 243-page report found that two Patriots employees violated rules covering game balls, and that Brady was "at least generally aware" of the plans to doctor the footballs to his liking. The report found some of Brady’s claims to investigators were "implausible," saying it was unlikely the two would have carried out the plan to deflate the balls to Brady’s liking without his knowledge.
Brady is scheduled to be interviewed by sportscaster Jim Gray during a previously scheduled event tonight at Salem State University.
Yee says the report "reached a conclusion first, and then determined so-called facts later." He charges that Wells’ firm makes a lot of money from the NFL and put out a report that benefits the league.
The Patriots defeated the Seahawks in the Super Bowl, and Brady was the MVP.
