NFL Lawyer Reportedly Lied To Judges About Tom Brady’s Honesty In Appeal

So this is a pretty big deal. Despite getting caught being less than truthful during the initial appeal process of Tom Brady’s four-game Deflategate suspension, the NFL is sticking to the story that the New England Patriots quarterback was deceitful while speaking to league commissioner Roger Goodell and its lawyers last June.

The league believes its own version of the truth to such a degree that it was willing to say it in court Thursday during the NFL’s appeal of Tom Brady’s vacated suspension, as CBS Boston’s Michael Hurley pointed out Friday morning.

NFL lawyer Paul Clement detailed how Brady would only admit during the appeal to talking to Patriots staffer John Jastremski about the Super Bowl days after the Deflategate story initially broke.

“(Brady) knew he was there to testify about that,” Clement told Judges Robert Katzmann, Barrington Parker Jr. and Denny Chin at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York. “He offered his version of events. It emphasized things like, ‘I talked to these individuals who I never talk to the day after the story broke, not because I want to talk about these events and what the story was, but rather to talk about Super Bowl ball preparation.’ To say all of that was being done to prepare the Super Bowl balls, I think the commissioner found that to simply not be a credible explanation to the conduct.”

More from Clement to the three judges, via Hurley: “If he had been a more credible witness in the commissioner’s eyes, that might also have reduced punishment.”

And more: “Both Wells and the commissioner determined that the testimony from Mr. Brady was not credible. We’re not here to second-guess that. … (Brady’s) in near-constant communication with Mr. Jastremski. The first and only meeting ever in the quarterbacks room. And the explanation for that is they’re preparing balls for the Super Bowl.”

OK. Here’s the issue: Brady didn’t say it went down like that, which I pointed out in early August, when the transcript was released from his appeal to the NFL. Brady told the NFL multiple times during the June appeal that he spoke to Jastremski about the budding Deflategate controversy. Some quotes from the appeal transcript:
