Report: NFL Looking at Pats Locker Room Attendant
Just because it's Super Week, doesnt mean the NFL has stopped their investigation of Deflategate.
The NFL has "zeroed in" on a New England Patriots locker room attendant who allegedly took footballs from the officials room to another part of the stadium on his way to the field.
The report, by Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, also says that the league has interviewed this individual and has surveillance video of this action.
However, the NFL is still "gauging" whether or not this employee did any wrongdoing as the investigation is ongoing. The person is referred to as a "person on interest."
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has denied ay wrong doing on two separate occasions, first pleading ignorance and most recently on Saturday blaming Mother Nature in some capacity.
Patriots QB Tom Brady also denied any involvement in "altering" the ball in a separate news conference on Thursday afternoon.
The NFL found that 11 of 12 Patriot footballs were under inflated during the first half of the AFC Championship, confirming an earlier Chris Mortensen report.
The NFL also released a statement saying that they had conducted close to 40 interviews on the matter, even hiring an independent investigator.
