Kraft had much to say to Peter King of The MMQB in his first public comments, outside of an angry statement when the league's surprising penalties were handed down, and some of the most interesting included his conversation with Brady. Brady told Kraft he was innocent even when Kraft offered him a last chance to come clean if he did anything wrong, via King:
“Yes. Because we had the discussion—if you did it, let’s just deal with it and take our hit and move on," Kraft said. "I’ve known Tommy 16 years, almost half his life. He’s a man, and he’s always been honest with me, and I trust him. I believed what he told me. He has never lied to me, and I have found no hard or conclusive evidence to the contrary.”
It's hard to say what Kraft's next move is, but he's not going to go down without a fight, which means we'll be talking about this for at least another couple of months. That's not a fun prospect when we should be talking about how the Patriots just won another ring. Well, at least there's never a dull moment.
