Reggie Wayne: Deflategate should disqualify Tom Brady from MVP contention
One former NFL player has a very strong opinion of Tom Brady’s name coming up in awards chatter.
Former Colts receiver Reggie Wayne told NFL Total Access that Brady shouldn’t win MVP because of his alleged role in the Deflategate scandal.
Can Brady win MVP this season?

To be strict, if Brady did anything, it happened long before this year. The game in question that started the controversy took place 22 months ago, in January of 2015. Obviously, that doesn’t disqualify Brady from being MVP this year, if he shows he warrants it.
Wayne reportedly didn’t love his brief time in New England. Maybe that colors his opinions of Brady. Either way, his argument is silly. Brady served his time, and he should be considered the same way as any other player would.
