According to multiple reports, Patriots owner Robert Kraft has requested the return of the draft picks lost from Deflategate.
No one should really be surprised by this. Patriot fans have been enamored with the prospect of getting the draft picks lost from Deflategate back since Judge Berman cleared Tom Brady in August.
While I agree with Kraft that this is a long shot, he is abiding by the wishes of Patriot Nation and showing his full support for Tom Brady. This is a slam dunk for the Patriots and, if they somehow get the 1st round draft pick back, should present a very interesting couple of weeks.
