Tom Brady downplays Deflategate findings

New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady shrugged off the findings of David Wells' investigation into Deflategate that concluded he probably knew about the deflated footballs. Does this taint the Patriots' Super Bowl win? “Absolutely not,” Brady said during an appearance at Salem State. “We earned everything we got and achieved as a team, and I am proud of that and so are our fans,” he said. Brady wouldn't elaborate on his thoughts, saying he hadn't read the 243-page report. “I don’t really have any reaction," Brady said. "It has only been 30 hours, I’ve not had much time to digest it,” Brady said. “When I do I will be sure to let you know how I feel about it. And everybody else.” What about his reputation that may be damaged now? “As a human you care about what people think. I think also as a public figure you learn not everyone is going to like you,” he said. “Good, bad or indifferent there are a lot of people who don’t like Tom Brady, and I am OK with that.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
