News Blitz 5/22: Patriots QB Tom Brady in the spotlight

Ted Wells, Robert Kraft and Roger Goodell have all had their say.

The final key figure in the infamous and ongoing Deflategate controversy yet to really share his side of the story is Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

The three-time Super Bowl MVP has already filed an appeal of his four-game suspension and as the process plays out it will be interesting to see how exactly No. 12 airs his side.

The Boston Globe delves into what is possibly next for Brady. The Globe also has a business story noting that a survey shows that Brady's appeal to consumers has taken a hit of late. The paper also brings details of Brandon Spikes contract in his return to New England.

Bills Pro Bowl defensive lineman Marcell Dareus has been suspended for the season opener for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Providence Journal columnist Jim Donaldson also says it's time for us to hear from Brady on the Deflategate issue.

The Washington Post agrees with what many in Patriots Nation have been saying for weeks, "NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell predetermined guilt in DeflateGate."

Interestingly the Pittsburgh Tribune claims that the Patriots legacy is "forever stained."

CBS Boston thinks the NFL's social media accounts, run by a Jets fan, have been trolling the Patriots.

WEEI.com also thinks NFL.com unfairly took an unnecessary shot at Brady. WEEI's more serious arm wonders if rookie lineman Shaq Mason can have an impact in New England as a rookie. It also wonders if referee Walt Anderson has worked his last Patriots game given his presence in the center of Deflategate and the Wells Report.

NFL.com's predicted Patriots starters for Week 1 includes some interesting names such as Jimmy Garoppolo, Jonas Gray, Tre' Jackson, Logan Ryan and others.

Birthday boy Julian Edelman has put out another video, this time showing off his offseason workouts on the beach. (Yes, ladies, he's shirtless!)
