It would appear the New England Patriots can stay focused on the business at hand even when the entire league is calling them cheaters after the Wells Investigation Report was released last week. In it the league has determined that yes the team did knowingly deflate the balls to give their team an advantage in the cold weather during the AFC Championship game. The advantage came because in cold or wet weather the ball is easier to grip, throw, and catch when it is not fully inflated. Hence the name Deflate-gate….but since most of the United States knows there are no limits to the length Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and Robert Kraft will go to in order to win a football game.
So with possible suspensions coming up next season there is only one thing the team can do and that is start preparing for next season. In their effort to focus on work the Patriots have signed all but one of their draft picks and seven rookie free agents. The biggest name that has yet to sign was the team’s first round pick Malcom Brown defensive tackle from the University of Texas. At 6 foot 2 inches and 319 pounds he has the quickness of a cat and can penetrate the offensive line on a regular basis according to Marcio Alaor BMG. He is expected to be a huge presence in the Pats run defense and since the team is looking at possible suspensions of Brady and Belichick their defense has to be as strong as possible.
