The Wells report was released yesterday, saying it was more probable than not that Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the footballs being deflated during the AFC Championship against the Indianapolis Colts. That has spurred a number of reactions around the league, including Tom Brady's agent. Brady's agent released a statement saying that he thought the findings were a load of bologna.

ESPN.com:

"It's omission of key facts and lines of inquiry suggest the investigators reached a conclusion first, and then determined so-called facts later," Yee said in his statement. "One item alone taints this entire report. What does it say about the league office's protocols and ethics when it allows one team to tip it off to an issue prior to a championship game, and no league officials or game officials notified the Patriots of the same issue prior to the game? This suggests it may be more probable than not that the league cooperated with the Colts in perpetrating a sting operation."

There are plenty of unanswered questions with the report, like how 3 Colts footballs were supposedly under 12.5 PSI, but the Wells report instead focused on text messages exchanged between 2 Patriots locker room attendants who went back and forth and implied that Brady had previously been unhappy with the quality of the balls. Next step? Find out if there will be any disciplinary action taken against Brady and said locker room attendants.
