New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he was wrong to put his faith in the NFL rather than pursue a legal challenge to the league's four-game suspension of star quarterback Tom Brady over his role in playing a playoff game last season with an underinflated football. Kraft said at a televised press conference in Foxborough, Mass., that Brady is a man of high integrity and an excellent ambassador for the team and the league. The owner called reports this week about Brady's destruction of a mobile phone intentionally inflammatory and misleading. Coach Bill Belichick followed Kraft's remarks by saying that there is "nothing to talk about" with regard to the ball incident, which has come to be called "Deflategate."
