Tom Brady Says Decision to Accept Deflategate Suspension Was a ‘Personal’ One


Tom Brady on Friday addressed the media for the first time since giving up his legal battle against the NFL. The New England Patriots quarterback, facing a four-game suspension to start the 2016 season, said the decision to move on from all the Deflategate drama was a “personal” one.

“I think it’s just personal. I’ve tried to move on from it,” Brady said, via CBS Boston. “I try to, like I said, focus on the positive and being here with my teammates and getting better. You don’t want to go out and do anything but try to be a great example for your teammates, and we’ve got a lot of competitive guys that have been out here on the practice field. And I think that’s where the focus needs to be.”

Reports have suggested Brady will work out with former teammates Randy Moss and Wes Welker during his suspension. But he gave no indication how he’ll handle his time away from the team.

“I’ll deal with that when it comes. I could … you know, I could have a plan and then change the plan. I don’t know,” he said.
