The New England Patriots are heading to the Super Bowl yet again, but they haven't forgotten how the Deflategate saga began.
Jonathan Kraft expressed little sympathy for former Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson, who was fired on Saturday.
During Kraft's weekly appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub on Sunday, he deflected a question about Grigson's firing before referring to the AFC Championship Game against Indianapolis that started Deflategate. "That game might have been Ryan's pinnacle, I don't know," Kraft said.
The Patriots beat the Colts 45-7 in the conference title game on Jan. 18, 2015.
Grigson later explained why he alerted the NFL about the Patriots' footballs, saying he wanted an even playing field. The Wells report also detailed Grigson's role in alerting the NFL via email before the AFC Championship Game.
