Tom Brady “probably” knew about Deflategate.

That’s in the report released by the NFL about the allegations that the New England Patriots intentionally deflating footballs in a playoff game. The deflated footballs were, allegedly, easier to throw and catch.

While suggesting Brady probably knew about the deflating process, the report singles out two people.

Jim McNally, the official’s locker room attendant for the Patriots, and John Jastremski, an assistant equipment manager are at the center of the report.
The report contains text messages between McNally and Jastremski. Those text messages do contain strong language that some may find offensive.
