Here we go again.
The NFL Players Association is “looking into” the statements made by Gisele about Tom Brady suffering a concussion last year that was not reported in NFL injury reports according to NESN.
After Gisele appeared on “CBS This Morning” and told Charlie Rose about Tom’s secret history of concussions, the NFLPA stated they will be looking into this.

A NFLPA representative said the league “had no official statement, but we are looking into.” Perhaps the NFLPA should be investigating the league for missing the concussion.
Cue the controversy, start up Ted Well’s mustache, fire up the ESPN machine and alert every news outlet. Truth is, if Tom did have a concussion, the league he employees that can spot these things, they’re just as guilty in this. The one big thing here is when exactly if and when did this occur. If it occurred in the preseason, the organization does not have to disclose that. Any time after the preseason, then the Patriots would have to disclose that. Let’s be clear, the Seahawks got warned for this exact thing, so anything harsher than that, is another witch hunt. The NFLPA should be on Brady’s side so maybe the NFL did something wrong.
Lastly, what is Gisele doing? Why is she saying this? Is she trying to get Tom to retire? What’s the end game there? Is this what it felt like when Yoko Ono broke up the Beatles? I’m at a loss here as to why someone would even say this if true. All this does is add more outside noise. Tom is going to get to that podium on day 1 and get question after question about concussions. It’s a huge distraction and quite honestly, I’m a little worn out after deflate gate.
