Tom Brady has weighed in on the sexual assault allegations facing his new teammate Antonio Brown.
Well, not quite. During media availability today, Brady was asked about the lawsuit against Brown from a former trainer.
Predictably, he didn’t have much to say about it.
The 42-year-old quarterback declined comment, saying he didn’t want “to get into all that.”

Tom Brady: “No.”
Reporter: Not a word?

This is one of those cases where the media has to ask, but Brady isn’t going to give them anything. For one, it doesn’t make sense for him to say anything and potentially have his words used against him, depending on how this situation unfolds.
Secondly, since the matter at hand is a legal issue and is ongoing, there really isn’t much anyone can say at this point. Time will tell what punishment Brown will face, if any.
The Patriots signed Brown on Saturday after he was released by the Oakland Raiders. The mercurial 31-year-old star practiced with his new team today.
However, his availability for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins is up in the air, as the investigation into the claims against him continues.
