Tom Brady breaks silence on Gisele’s concussion claim

It's been nearly two months since Gisele Bundchen claimed that her husband suffered a concussion last season and that he has had many over the course of his career.

After avoiding any and all media during the New England Patriots' OTAs, Tom Brady has finally broken his silence regarding the claims.

The quarterback's E:60 episode aired Sunday morning, and during his "trip of a lifetime" tour of Asia, the concussion accusation was brought up, in a roundabout way.

E:60’s Kevin Negandhi formulated the question like this, “Gisele sees the hits, she was vocal about that, most recently on CBS about the concussions, how much do you talk to her about those hits you take?”

“She’s there every day,” Brady responded, “I mean, we go to bed in the same bed every night, so I think she knows when I’m sore, she knows when I’m tired, she knows when I get hit. We drive home together [from games]. But, she also knows how well I take care of myself. She’s a very concerned wife and very loving.”

By neither confirming nor denying his wife’s claims, Brady is able to coyly respond without really saying much at all.

Besides, just mere hours after Gisele’s interview aired, the NFL released a statement saying that they investigated the situation and found no evidence that Brady had suffered a concussion in the previous season. Even his agent, Don Yee, said the same thing.

“Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion last year,” Yee said, “Many of the protocols and safeguards are still evolving, and it’s obviously a good thing the organization and everyone close to him is vigilant and always looking out for his health.”

Whether the topic comes up again is up to the media, but don’t look for Brady and company to discuss it any further.
