According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, via a source, someone finally has an explanation as to why the New England Patriots suspended the two employees allegedly involved with QB Tom Brady in the Deflategate saga, Jim McNally and John Jastremski, if as the team claims, they did nothing wrong.
Peter King asked owner Robert Kraft that very question, but he opted to go the ‘no comment’ route.
Schefter, per Facebook:
“For those asking why Patriots suspended two employees if those two did nothing wrong, as New England claims: NFL asked Pats to suspend them prior to discipline being handed down, per a league source in New York. New England obliged with the NFL’s request.”
