The high drama surrounding the tampering penalty against Dolphins’ owner Stephen Ross has Miami Herald columnist Greg Cote asking why Bucs quarterback Tom Brady isn’t also in trouble.
“Why is Brady skating scot-free through all of this?” he wrote.
Brady was under contract with the Bucs when the NFL said Ross tried to lure him to Miami. Ross is suspended and was fined $1.5 million.
“Brady? It’s as if he was never a part of it,” Cote wrote. “… NFL’s tampering findings all seem to substantiate that Brady was a willing participant.”
Brady is on “planned personal leave” from the Bucs.
