Brady trying to move on from 'Deflategate'


The New England Patriots Way: Do your job, say very little and avoid controversy. Tom Brady followed the team's instruction manual on Friday when he spoke to reporters publicly for the first time since ending his appeal on 'Deflategate'.

Brady accepted a four-game suspension last month for his apparent involvement in deflating footballs in the 2015 AFC Championship Game.

The four-time Super Bowl champion and two-time MVP quarterback did not come out all guns blazing and blast NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, instead Brady was relatively subdued following New England's practice session.

"I've just tried to move on from it," Brady said Friday after practice.

"I'll be excited to be back when I'm back, and I'll be cheering our team and hopefully we'll go out and win every game."

Judging from the training camp stats, Brady could not have set a better example on the field.

He finished his 11-on-11 practice session completing 25 of 25 passes for four touchdowns.

On serving a four-game suspension, Brady added: "I've tried to be as positive as I can be. I think that's kind of always been my motto.

"Over the course of my career, I've been faced with different things and tried to overcome them the best way I could, or the best way I knew how. I'll try to do the same thing."
