Safety Bernard Pollard, an open Brady hater, rushed to the Quarterback’s defense today.
Pollard, the safety who hit Brady in the knee, tearing his ACL in 2008, spoke to NFL Sirius XM radio about Brady and took his side against Goodell.
“I do not like Tom Brady as a competitor, somebody that’s playing against him because he is a competitive player. I respect the piss out of him because the guy knows how to win. The guy, you can say whatever you want about him, but he is a true champion,” Pollard said.
He went on to say other Quarterbacks probably deflate footballs and Brady should not be suspended four-games.
“Do I feel that he should be suspended four games? I’m going to tell you, no,” he said. “This dude is a competitor, man. I don’t think he should’ve been suspended for four games. But I’m not the commissioner, I’m not on that committee that suspended him, and I know he’s going to fight tooth and nail like he does on the field to get back on the field with his team.”
