Aaron Rodgers Shades Tom Brady

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took a shot at Tom Brady and his former team, the New England Patriots, in an interview with Sportsnet. 

“This is too firm for the Patriots,” Rodgers joked while holding a football. The jab is a reference to Brady’s ‘Deflategate’ scandal. 

According to ESPN, Deflategate implied that the New England Patriots used an illegal process for lowering the inflation of game footballs… namely during the AFC Championship against the Indianapolis Colts because Brady reportedly preferred the grip of softer balls. The claims were investigated and a probe led to a four-game suspension of Brady the following season.
