VIA: An external investigation into whether the New England Patriots deflated balls was released Wednesday afternoon. The investigation, spearheaded by attorney Ted Wells, concluded that the Patriots probably violated rules.
“For the reasons described in this Report, and after a comprehensive investigation, we have concluded that, in connection with the AFC Championship Game, it is more probable than not that New England Patriots personnel participated in violations of the Playing Rules and were involved in a deliberate effort to circumvent the rules.”
The report was not kind to Tom Brady.
“We also have concluded that it is more probable than not that Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities of [the locker room attendants] involving the release of air from Patriots game balls.”
The report includes text messages between two Patriots employees, Jim McNally and John Jastremski. It’s completely absurd and very incriminating.
According to ESPN, the NFL is considering punishment for Brady, McNally and Jastremski.
