Brady’s agent, Don Yee, wasn’t pleased with the report, which concluded Brady was “generally aware” of the deflated balls.
“Looking at all of the evidence, they could have wrote that they were ‘absolutely certain,'” Yee said Friday on 98.5 The Sports Hub with Scott Zolak and Marc Bertrand. “That the Patriots or Tom did something to the balls, they chose not to. They could have written ‘we’re virtually certain.’ They didn’t use those words. They could have written ‘we’re substantially certain.’ They didn’t use those words either.

“They went with ‘more probable than not,’ which is a much, more lower threshold.”
Yee further discussed some of the aspects of the report that he had a problem with.
“Every juncture where the investigative team, for example, in the report could have made an inference or a conclusion that was favorable to Tom [Brady] or the Patriots organization, they chose not to,” Yee said. “In every instance where there was a choice between believing the credibility of league officials or Colts officials versus Tom or the Patriots’ officials, it appeared to me that they chose always to minimize the credibility of the Patriots or Tom.”
Brady is expected to be disciplined by the NFL, and according to Vegas, odds are the punishment will likely be a multiple game suspension.MORE NEWS: Civil Rights Lawsuit Filed Against Wilmington Police Officer Samuel Waters Accusing Excessive Force, Using N-Word
“If they do hand out any discipline,” Yee said, “We’ll obviously try to understand what it is and consider the option and discuss that amongst ourselves. And see what the future holds.”
