Report: NFL looking to discipline Brady, two Patriots employees after Wells Report on Deflategate
Wednesday May 6th, 2015

Investigator Ted Wells released his report about the New England Patriots' Deflategate scandal on Wednesday.

After the report was released, NFL players shared their reactions on Twitter to the findings that Patriots personnel likely manipulated the air pressure of the footballs used in the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts, Wells concluded. 

The report found "it is more probable than not that New England Patriots personnel participated in violations of the Playing Rules and were involved in a deliberate effort to circumvent the rules." The report also states that it is probable Tom Brady "was at least generally aware of... the release of air from Patriots game balls​."
