Patriots' Tom Brady meeting with NFL after Super Bowl 49


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady doesn't expect to meet with the NFL until after Super Bowl 49, according to NFL.com.

The Patriots have been in the headlines all week due to DeflateGate, and it appears the situation won't be resolved until after the season. "I believe they're going to do [a meeting] after the season," Brady said. "So we'll deal with it after this game. I think everybody is locked in, ready to go for the Super Bowl." Both Brady and coach Bill Belichick have held separate press conferences during the week to deny the team's involvement in deflating their footballs. 

The Patriots are subject to punishment from the NFL if the leauge finds any wrongdoing during the investigation. 


Tom Brady the lone full participant for Pats in Thursday's practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was the only full participant in Thursday's practice in preparation for the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 against the Seahawks, according to 710 AM ESPN Radio in Seattle.

Cornerback Brandon Browner (knee), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive tackle Chris Jones (elbow), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe), defensive lineman Sealver Siliga (foot) and center Bryan Stork (knee) were all limited participants.


Tom Brady: 'Didn't alter the ball in any way'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told a jam-packed room of reporters he "didn't alter the ball in any way" for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Colts.

"When I pick the footballs out [before the game], at that point to me they're perfect," he said. "I don't want anyone touching the balls after that. ... That's what I expect when I show up on the field."

Brady said he would "never do anything outside the rules of play" and had "no knowledge of any wrongdoing" by anyone on the Patriots' staff. Brady said he likes the footballs inflated to 12.5 pounds per square inch of pressure, the minimum of the legal 12.5-13.5 range.

The NFL found 11 of 12 game balls the Patriots used in the first half against Indy were significantly underinflated after being deemed legal before the game, according to ESPN. The league is investigating and has yet to release its findings. Brady said he had not been contacted by the NFL.

Although the refs replaced the underinflated footballs for the second half, Brady insisted he didn't notice any difference. "From the first half to the second half, I didn't think twice about it," he said. "Once I approved the ball, that's the ball I expected out there on the field."

Earlier Thursday, coach Bill Belichick said he was shocked to learn of the allegations Monday morning and that he had "no knowledge of the situation whatsoever." Belichick said Brady would be in better position to address the issue.

"Tom's personal preferences on his footballs are something that he can talk about in much better detail and information than I could possibly provide," Belichick said.

NBC News reported Brady met with teammates Thursday afternoon, told them he prefers footballs "a certain way" and urged them to remain focused on the Super Bowl. In his news conference, Brady declined to say what he told his teammates.

And how the footballs got underinflated, he said, is a mystery to him.

"I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I don't know what happened," Brady said. "I have no explanation for it."


Patriots C Bryan Stork would have missed practice Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) The Patriots released a hypothetical Wednesday practice report during the bye week, with center Bryan Stork being listed as a DNP due to a knee injury.

Quarterback Tom Brady also appeared on the report with an ankle injury but would have participated fully in practice.

Five players would have been limited if the Patriots would have held practice Wednesday, including wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe), defensive linemen Chris Jones (elbow) and Sealver Siliga (foot), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and cornerback Brandon Browner (knee).

New England is a 1-point favorite against Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX after opening as an underdog.


NFL aims to complete deflated ball investigation in 2-3 days


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Troy Vincent, the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, told Pro Football Talk the league wants to quickly wrap up its investigation into whether the Patriots overly deflated one or more footballs in Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

"We're hoping to wrap that up in the next two or three days," Vincent said. "The team is in place in New England now interviewing staff members.

"We obviously want to get that on the table, get that behind us so that we can really get back to the game itself."

Vincent added fans "want to know that everything's equal. The integrity of the game is so important."

The Colts detected something unusual after linebacker D'Qwell Jackson made a second quarter interception. Jackson gave the ball to a member of the team's equipment staff, and the staffer noticed the ball seemed underinflated.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick says the team is cooperating fully with the investigation but has not elaborated on the allegation. Quarterback Tom Brady laughed off the controversy. However, in 2011 he told WEEI he likes the way the football deflates following a vicious Rob Gronkowski spike.

"... When Gronk scores -- it was like his eighth touchdown of the year -- he spikes the ball and he deflates the ball," Brady told the radio station. "I love that, because I like the deflated ball. But I feel bad for that football, because he puts everything he can into those spikes."


Falcons QB Matt Ryan to replace Tom Brady in Pro Bowl


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan will replace Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the 2015 Pro Bowl, the team announced Monday. Brady cannot play as he prepares for the Super Bowl next week. 

Ryan threw for 4,694 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2014, his second best yardage season of his seven-year career.


Patriots' Tom Brady throws for three touchdowns on Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw for three touchdowns in the AFC Championship game against the Colts. 

Brady completed 23 of 35 passes for 226 yards and three scores. He turned the ball over once, tossing one interception. Brady was on top of his game, averaging 6.5 yards per attempt. He was able to turn in a strong game despite Julian Edelman missing half a quarter with an injury, and Rob Gronkowski not catching his first pass until the third quarter. Brady played fairly deep into the contest, but was removed once the game got out of hand. He left the field to a loud ovation from the fans.

Brady will take on the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.


Patriots' Tom Brady good to go for the AFC Championship


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is active for the AFC Championship game.

Brady was never a real threat to miss the contest. He was listed as probable on the injury report due to an ankle injury, but that's been the case all season. Brady will play, and should be 100 percent. 

The team will also have Brandon Browner, Dont'a Hightower and Brandon LaFell. All three players were also listed as probable heading into the contest.


LaFell, Hightower among Patriots on injury report for AFC title game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) As the Patriots gear up for Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. Indianapolis, the team has listed linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) and cornerback Brandon Browner (knee) as questionable on the injury report. All three players were limited in practice Friday.

Defensive tackle Chris Jones (elbow) was the only other Patriots' player listed as questionable. Center Bryan Stork has been ruled out due to a knee injury, while quarterback Tom Brady is probable with an ankle injury.

The Patriots are 6 1/2-point favorites for Sunday's game.


Patriots WR Brandon LaFell limited in practice Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) Wide receiver Brandon LaFell was one of four Patriots players limited in practice Thursday, but he doesn't anticipate his toe and shoulder injuries keeping him out of Sunday's AFC Championship game, NESN.com reports.

"At this time of year, everybody’s banged up," LaFell said. "So when you think about sitting out, you think about all of them hard days you put in in camp, OTAs and you’re like, ‘I didn’t do all of that work six-to-seven months ago to sit out now.’ So no matter what injury (anybody’s) got in this locker room, they’re going to play through."

Defensive lineman Chris Jones (elbow), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and cornerback Brandon Browner (ankle) were also limited in practice Thursday. Quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was able to practice in full.

New England is a 6 1/2-point favorite for Sunday's home game against Indianapolis.


Patriots' Tom Brady totals four touchdowns in divisional round win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw for 367 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in New England's 35-31 win over the Ravens Saturday. He also had a rushing touchdown on the day.

After struggling to move the ball, Brady got the Patriots down to the goal line, where he decided to tuck and run from four yards out and score at the end of the first quarter.

He then connected with Danny Amendola from 11 yards out to tie the game at 14.

Then, with the Ravens up 28-14, Brady found Rob Gronkowski and a slant on the goal line for a touchdown.

Brady's third and final touchdown pass put the Patriots up for good when he found Brandon LaFell from 23 yards away. The touchdown made Brady the all-time leader in postseason touchdown passes, surpassing Joe Montana.


Brady, Edelman, LaFell good to go for divisional playoff Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) The Patriots will have quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell for New England's divisonal round playoff matchup against the Ravens Saturday.

Brady (ankle), Edelman (concussion) and LaFell (shoulder/toe) were all listed as probable for the matchup. Brady threw for 4,109 yards with 33 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2014.

The Patriots are currently 7-point favorites against Baltimore Saturday.


Tom Brady, Julian Edelman probable for Patriots


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) The Patriots should have both Tom Brady and Julian Edelman against the Ravens on Saturday. 

Brady is listed with an ankle injury, but should play. He's been listed on the injury report every week this season, but always plays. Edelman is getting over a concussion, but will attempt to play through it.

The team will also have Jonas Gray and Brandon LaFell for the contest. Both players were also listed as probable. Gray is coming back from an ankle issue. LaFell has a shoulder and toe injury.


Four key Patriots limited in practice Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2015) Four key Patriots were limited in practice Wednesday ahead of Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Ravens: receivers Julian Edelman (concussion) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder/toe), and running backs LeGarrette Blount (illness) and Jonas Gray (ankle).

All are fully expected to play. Quarterback Tom Brady practiced fully despite being listed with an ankle injury. Coming off a bye week, New England is a 7-point home favorite.


Report: Tom Brady restructures deal to free up $24M for Pats


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has restructured his contract to give New England $24 million more to spend in the offseason, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Under the new deal, which was submitted to the NFL on Monday, Brady changed the $24 million in "skill" guarantee to only "injury" guarantee, meaning Brady would get the guaranteed money only if he were injured.

Brady can now also be released from the Patriots without any liability, but he then would become an unrestricted free agent.


Patriots bench Tom Brady at start of second half against Bills


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was benched to start the second half of Week 17's game against the Bills. Brady finished the day going 8 for 16 passing for 80 yards with no touchdowns and no turnovers.

The Patriots already clinched a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and did not need to win the game.

Brady finishes the 2014 regular season with 4,109 and 33 touchdowns. It is his seventh season throwing over 4,000 yards. Brady's next appearance will come in the divisional round of the playoffs.


Patriots stars not expected to play significant role vs. Buffalo


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is unlikely to play more than a quarter at most in Week 17 against Buffalo, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Jimmy Garoppolo will likely see the majority of the snaps at quarterback.

The Patriots have clinched home-field advantage and have little to play for on Sunday, which means star players like Darrelle Revis and Rob Gronkowski and other injury-prone players are not expected to play a significant role against Buffalo.

New England opened as an 8 1/2-point favorite at home vs. Buffalo. The line has dropped to only 5 points in favor of the Patriots.


Patriots list lengthy injury report for final regular season game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Patriots listed 18 players on its final injury report for Week 17 against Buffalo. Quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was the only player on the report listed as probable, while running back Jonas Gray (ankle) and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring) were ruled out. The rest were deemed questionable.

The others include long snapper Danny Aiken (finger), cornerback Kyle Arrington (hamstring), running back LeGarrette Blount (shoulder), cornerback Brandon Browner (groin), linebacker Jamie Collins, offensive lineman Dan Connolly (knee), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh, concussion), offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), defensive end Rob Ninkovich (heel), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer and linebacker Chris White (ankle).


Tom Brady has out-of-character performance


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) The Patriots have played some weird games against Jets in recent years, including a 27-25 squeaker when they were at their hottest back in Week 7. So perhaps it's not surprising quarterback Tom Brady wasn't at his best Week 16 at the Jets as the Patriots eked out another victory, this time by just one point.

He completed 23 of 35 passes for 182 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He was coming off a streak of 10 games with both 200-plus passing yards and two-plus touchdowns.

Brady was playing without his top target, wide receiver Julian Edelman, who was out with a concussion. But with Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell still at his disposal and Danny Amendola filling in capably, that likely wasn't the reason for his struggles. The matchup shouldn't have been either given where the Jets rank against the pass, but in three of his last four games against the division rival, Brady has thrown for less than two scores. And in all four, he's thrown for less than 300 yards.

Maybe it's just a matter of them being too familiar with each other. In any case, you shouldn't let this performance discourage you from starting Brady Week 17 against Buffalo unless of course the Patriots have already secured homefield advantage throughout the playoffs by that point.


Patriots QB Tom Brady held under 200 yards in win over Jets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was held under 200 passing yards for the third time this season during Sunday's 17-16 victory over the Jets in Week 16.

Brady found Rob Gronkowski for a 3-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He compiled 182 yards while completing 23 of 35 passes. He added one touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 76.1 passer rating.

Brady has passed for 4,029 yards with 33 touchdowns and eight interceptions this season. He'll look to end the regular season on a high note against the Bills in Week 17.


Patriots list 12 players as questionable in Week 16 injury report


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Patriots listed the following players as questionable for Week 16’s game at the New York Jets: Danny Aiken (finger), Kyle Arrington (hamstring), LeGarrette Blount (shoulder), Dan Connolly (knee), Julian Edelman (concussion), Cameron Fleming (ankle), Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), Chandler Jones (hip), Brandon LaFell (shoulder), Rob Ninkovich (heel), Shane Vereen (ankle) and Chris White (ankle).

Patriots QB Tom Brady catches fire after halftime vs. Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady turned in another impressive performance and fell 13 yards shy of surpassing the 300-yard mark in a Week 15 victory over Miami.

Brady struggled in the first half, completing only 8 of 15 passes for 82 yards and an interception. He got back on track and scored both of his touchdowns in the third quarter, hooking up with Rob Gronkowski for a 27 strike and Julian Edelman for a 6-yard score. He completed 21 of 35 passes for 287 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed for 18 yards on three carries, including a 17-yard run in his team's 41-13 victory, clinching a sixth straight AFC East title. 

Brady has passed for 3,847 yards with 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions on the year. He'll look to keep rolling Week 16 against the Jets.


Brady, LaFell, Edelman, Vereen among notable active players for Pats


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) As expected, the Patriots ruled four of their offensive stars active for Sunday's divisional clash against Miami in Week 15. Those four include Tom Brady (ankle), Julian Edelman (thigh), Brandon LaFell (shoulder) and Shane Vereen (ankle). Brady was the only one of the four ruled probable leading up to Sunday. The other three were questionable.

Patriots QB Tom Brady throws two TDs in win vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed 28 of his 44 passes for 317 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in his team's 23-14 win over the Chargers in Week 14.

If Brady's interception wasn't the worst of his career, it was close, as he severely underthrew Rob Gronkowski on a potential touchdown at the end of the first half and provided Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o with the easiest pick he'll ever see. Aside from that pass, Brady was his usual excellent self, hitting Gronkowski for a 14-yard touchdown in the first half and then connecting with Julian Edelman on a 69-yard catch-and-run for a fourth-quarter score that extended the team's lead from two points to nine. Brady and the Patriots bring a 10-3 record into a Week 15 home meeting with the Dolphins.


Patriots' Brady, Vereen, Edelman, LaFell active Week 14


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Nine players on the Patriots' final Week 14 injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, including quarterback Tom Brady (ankle), running back Shane Vereen (ankle) and wide receivers Julian Edelman (thigh) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder).

Brady and tackle Marcus Cannon (hip) were listed as probable, so their absence from the team's inactive list isn't a surprise. Vereen, Edelman and LaFell all carried questionable tags coming into Sunday. Other questionables who are active against the Chargers include center Danny Aiken (concussion), guard Dan Connolly (ankle), defensive tackle Dominique Easley (knee) and cornerback Kyle Arrington (ankle).
