Agent says Tom Brady wasn’t diagnosed with a concussion in 2016

Getty Images

The NFL responded to Gisele Bundchen saying that her husband Tom Brady had a concussion last year by saying there was no sign that the Brady ever reported experiencing symptoms to the team’s medical staff.

That fit with the notion that Brady may have suffered a concussion without alerting the team or entering the league’s concussion protocol. If the Patriots quarterback was ever diagnosed with a concussion last year, however, it would be news to his agent Don Yee.

“Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion last year,” Yee said, via Adam Schefter of ESPN. “Many of the protocols and safeguards still are evolving, and it’s obviously a good thing the organization and everyone close to him is vigilant and always looking out for his health.”

Brady hasn’t weighed in publicly about Bundchen’s comments on CBS This Morning, but his agent’s comments suggest his response might be along the lines of his wife using a diagnostic term to describe his condition that wasn’t medically accurate.

    His wife doesn’t need to stay in her lane, she needs to get off the road all together! Nothing like trying to torpedo your husband!

    We get that you want him to retire so you can go play Candyland or whatever you plan on doing but let the guy go out on his own terms.

    NFL teams have probably found ways of ensuring that the team doctors don’t provide an official “diagnosis” of a concussion to avoid the consequences that come with it, even if everyone knows/thinks it’s a concussion.

  3. DerekCarrsGoldenArm says: May 19, 2017 1:28 PM

    “Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion last year” does not mean he didn’t have one.

    I’m wondering what occurred at home that would make Mrs. Brady believe her husband had a concussion. Did he complain of headaches? Did she turn on the lights all of a sudden and he complained about the light?

    What would make her claim it?

  4. brwmstr says: May 19, 2017 1:30 PM

    How long before the league demands TB hand over private medical records….he won’t (obviously) and they suspend him for “lack of cooperation”……cue the haters saying if he has nothing to hide he would hand over his private medical records…..

  5. bartor1544 says: May 19, 2017 1:39 PM

    “Did he complain of headaches? Did she turn on the lights all of a sudden and he complained about the light?”

    I’d say that would indicate too many Avocado Spirits the previous night.

    Oh so you mean that using a super model’s diagnosis of a concussion as fodder for the trolls to break out their whiny, hypocritical pitchforks is, shall I say, a bit silly and makes them all look like morons? Yes, I agree.

    Now we can chill out until Tom’s next sneeze.

    Of course he didn’t.

  9. thegreatjimbrown says: May 19, 2017 1:53 PM

    That’s so obvious. To say he was never diagnosed with a concussion . . . . if you never ask a doc, you don’t get diagnosed.

    What the agent didn’t say : “Tom never showed any symptoms of having a concussion.” That would be a stronger statement.

    NFL investigators need to see Brady’s medical records ASAP, before they’re destroyed.

    A wife saying her husband has had concussions for years that weren’t on the team’s injury report would seem to be a very serious and dangerous violation of league rules… either the Patriots covered them up or Brady didn’t report them.

    If the league cares about brain trauma as much as it claims, it will better take this seriously and find out the truth.

  12. peytonwantsaflag says: May 19, 2017 1:59 PM

    he wouldn’t be the first husband to use a fake medical diagnoses to cover up some nefarious deed.

    “but Giselle baby, I have no idea AT ALL who she was, I musta blacked out.”

  13. whatjusthapped says: May 19, 2017 2:02 PM

    Love how they parse the language, Bill Clinton doesn’t have anything on Tom Brady’s lawyer.

    Here is the thing, Brady is a great QB, you would think he wouldn’t need to deflate footballs, get advance scouting reports based on illegal taping or avoid NFL injury protocols but here we are again, facing the line of fire over bending the rules.

  14. xenova1 says: May 19, 2017 2:04 PM

    Are the agents notified when clients are diagnosed with a concussion? His statement is meaningless. Brady or the Patriots may have withheld this information and not gotten an independent diagnosis.

    Let’s just keep getting opinions from anyone who knows Tom Brady so we can keep this NON STORY alive durring a slow offseason period…..
    It feeds the trolls & gets more hits than anything else out there!!!

  18. styro1 says: May 19, 2017 2:19 PM

    Bundchen said “I mean, he has concussions, pretty much, I mean, we don’t talk about [it] but he does have concussions.”

    I don’t even think she nows what the hell she is talking about. What does, “he has concussions”, even mean? They never talked about him having a concussion but knows he did?
    Is she more experienced to diagnose concussions than team doctors, Refs and the spotters at NFL games?
    Sounds like she’s trying to torpedo his career.

  20. mojodoa says: May 19, 2017 2:21 PM

    Brady could of had a hundred concussions and hid them all. Players are not required to say anything. Brady doesn’t have to disclose anything. The NFL can’t do anything to him. Now if the Pats knew or suspected he had a concussion and covered it up…..that’s a whole different story. Probably just a player wanting to play by keeping his mouth shut (unlike his blathering wife).

    That is total baloney. It only impacts Brady’s personal long term health if he lied. Nothing else. And there is no way you care about that.

    Unless you were hoping he would miss games because he was diagnosed or you think you would have changed your betting stance, you have zero reason to care about this.

  22. dimi1919 says: May 19, 2017 2:22 PM

    Whether he did or didn’t, his wife and his agent are not doctors. Not their area of expertise.

  23. popcherrycoke says: May 19, 2017 2:23 PM

    The NFL already proved it doesn’t give a hoot when players, coaches, and medical staffs -who were fully aware of injuries- fail to disclose them. Even if Brady had “symptoms” that he kept to himself it doesn’t matter. Players play through injuries all the time and say nothing.

    This is a non story. Nothing but red meat for the cry babies.

    The NFL would be foolish to pursue this further.

    Giselle heard all the concussion talk the past while so shes obviously worried about them.

    Im not even kidding. This makes too much sense to not be true

  39. bighairbingopro says: May 19, 2017 2:58 PM

    Do you really think Brady would share this info with his agent? Why? What purpose is served? Drew Breese recently said, if he got concussed, he wouldn’t even tell his wife, let alone anyone else. The bottom line is that IF Tom had a concussion and IF the refs, the Pats staff, did not detect it, Tom had no duty or obligation to tell them and no rules were broken. Brady is a warrior. He will only leave the playing field in a body bag.

    You’d think so, but you just said it:

    They went out of their way to frame Brady, but they also went out of their way to so obviously lie and cover up obvious cheating by Gomer Manning, because for some reason, Horseteeth and Pat Bowlen are one of the protected franchises.

    They could announce cap cheating and roid cheating during a press conference and Goodell would do nothing.

    I doubt Brady did anything wrong. The real tabloid question is, were Gisele’s statements an innocent slip of the tongue or was she trying to throw her husband under the bus. Watching her reactions at the latest SB, my guess is she inadvertently said the wrong thing at the wrong time but there was no malice to it and she wasn’t trying to hurt her husband

    Move on Roger, nothing to see here.

    The Patsies will let Bill speak for them and he will tell us even less! (as per his usual)

    TB will support his wife (I mean, come on, even if she crossed a line, wouldn’t you???) – and say something about experiencing symptoms but never being diagnosed. He may even say that he understands how Gisele may have said what she said because he (TB) had a “poor choice of words.”

    Gisele will say nothing (more).

    The agent will lie. That’s what agents do. Didn’t you see Jerry McGuire?

  60. nyneal says: May 19, 2017 4:20 PM

    Tom Brady is one of the most polarizing sports figures in our country. It seems you either love him, or you hate him.
    I don’t get the hate for him. He doesn’t get caught doing drugs, or PED’s, or beating up his wife, or cheating on her, or having several babies with several women, or any of the other non stop reasons we see so many NFL players getting caught doing today.
    All he does is play great and win. That’s the real reason the haters hate him.
    And as for deflategate — that was the biggest non story I’ve ever seen. If people think that the pressure in those footballs in that game had anything to do with the Pats crushing the Colts in that game, I have a bridge to sell you.
    Think about it. The Colts whined to Goodell about the air pressure in the footballs, when science has proven that weather conditions alone can drop the air pressure in footballs. And — the Colts owner was abusing drugs!!
    I am not a Patriots fan. But I know greatness when I see it and Tom Brady is a great QB.
    As for his wife, she should stick to her modeling and shut up about anything else, because what she knows about football you could put on the head of a pin.

    —-
    And this is how false information gets passed around enough times that it eventually becomes “Gospel truth” to people on the internet. In fact, Aaron Rodgers did NOT say he played with over-inflated footballs.
    The NFL has minimum and maximum PSI levels for game-day footballs. At some point they are all to be inspected by referees and adjusted within allowable limits if necessary. Once checked, the balls are not to be altered by anyone before or during usage in a game.
    Rodgers, who likes a more inflated football, admitted the he overinflated footballs BEFORE they were inspected by the referees, knowing they would let air out of them to meet standards, while still leaving them near the top of the allowable PSI limit.
    Rodgers did NOT attempt to adjust the footballs once the referees adjusted and OK’d them for play, meaning he did not break any rules.
    I don’t know if Tom Brady cheated or not, and I have no opinion one way or the other. But unlike Rodgers, he was accused of spiriting away footballs and having them adjusted AFTER the referees had done their pre-game inspection, which if true would be a clear violation of NFL rules.

Meanwhile, Ashley, after years of unsuccessfully trying to conceive, had twins about 11 months after the package was delivered. Get your facts straight. If Roger was willing to try and burn down Brady, he wouldn’t have thought twice about going after Manning if he had something on P. Roger is a peach of a guy!

    That’s so obvious. To say he was never diagnosed with a concussion . . . . if you never ask a doc, you don’t get diagnosed.

    BINGO!!

    Tom Brady was not diagnosed with a concussion because Tom Brady didn’t “self report” as he was required to do. Interesting his agent restricts his denial to only 2016. What about 2015, 2014,2013, etc? A glaring omission that is pretty ingenious.

    Not only do they cheat but the lie too. Get your story straight.

    OK, here’s the straight story. The Steelers have lost 3 AFC Championships to Tom Brady.

    I think Bundchen was trying to say look at some of the hits he has taken it’s obvious he’s had some sort of concussion

    “Rodgers, who likes a more inflated football, admitted the he overinflated footballs BEFORE they were inspected by the referees, knowing they would let air out of them to meet standards, ”

    Its clear Rodgers regularly got the overinflated balls by the refs and was playing with balls outside the proper level.

    Also intention to cheat that might be gotten by the refs is still the attempt to cheat. Whether the refs catch it or not every time doesn’t change that. Nor does your attempt to use semantics to justify Rodgers cheating change that either.

    Furthermore the Vikes and Panthers were seen tampering with balls on national TV in a game against each other and got no penalty.

    And ever further –

    After he retired former NFL pro bowl QB Jeff Blake, who played for the Jets, Bengals, Saints, Ravens, Cardinals, Eagles and Bears admitted during a radio interview on Nashville 104.5 The Zone that he ordered ball boys to let the air out of his footballs just before the game throughout his NFL career. He played from 1992 to 2005.

    “Cause when you take the balls out of the bag, they are rock hard. And you can’t feel the ball as well. It’s too hard. Everybody puts the pin in and takes just enough air out of the ball that you can feel it a little better. But it’s not the point to where it’s flat. So I don’t know what the big deal is. It’s not something that’s not been done for 20 years.”

    The NFL never investigated any of these teams. They never fined any of these teams. They never penalized any of them either financially or by removing draft picks. No one in the sports news media has mentioned this once.

    BFD I guarantee every player in the NFL had a concussion last year, except for kickers. It is a rough sport.

    How this is a concern for any of you “fans” is so transparent. You dont care that precedent has been set for real, documented injuries going unreported with zero repercussions. All you want to do is cry about Brady possibly playing through a concussion that the independent observers didnt catch. You’re all frauds. Whiny little frauds that cling to BS because you’re jealous. That is obvious to anyone with a working brain. Beat him on the field, concussion or not, losers.

  78. popcherrycoke says: May 19, 2017 6:27 PM

    Stopped reading your hot take here because you very obviously have ZERO clue what you’re talking about.

    Brady is a star.

    He’s got a 5 star super bowl record*****

    Now we hear that he sees stars… regularly, per his wife.

    What a fraud. Dude makes Lance Armstrong and Shoeless Joe Jackson look legit.

    More cheating, intentional misdirections by Brady and the Pats. Stunning!

  82. senatorblutarsky says: May 19, 2017 7:00 PM

    Next she’ll say shady finished the season with a broken throwing arm and powered through it. Oh, he’s just the greatest.

    My my, just look at all the patsanoia up in here. It does a Pats fan good. I think stealer squealer tears are the most buoyant but division tears are the tastiest. Please discuss

  89. LyinRogerMustGo says: May 19, 2017 8:39 PM

    Tom Brady was not diagnosed with a concussion because Tom Brady didn’t “self report” as he was required to do


    He is required to do absolutely no such thing. But you knew that already.

    I’ve always said Patriot Hater knows nothing about the NFL or the sport and they prove me right every day!

    Finally Patriot Hater admits it! 🙂 It’s a start.

    Now… take the next step and admit your limp wristed wuss of a team and all their fans are an embarrassment and never will belong in the same sentence as the World Champion Patriots and their superior fans.

    The truth shall set you free. I only preach the truth cupcakes nothing else.

    Of course they have. We already knew who the real cheaters were but thanks for confirming.

  98. firemarshal1 says: May 20, 2017 9:59 AM

    The Patriots way is “we are special, Bob Kraft wears the pants in the NFL.” Cheating is condoned and the officials control the game’s outcomes.

  99. concussion182 says: May 20, 2017 10:13 AM

    This year the Patriots will begin a bad luck streak. The days of championship runs are over. Count on it. Belichick has been figured out.

  100. plum54 says: May 20, 2017 10:37 AM

    Big hair- my self and every football fan would rather have 5 Super Bowl wins instead of ” my team has a career Winning record “against the Pat’s.
    My favorite win was the one against Seattle, the same Seattle team that embarrassed Denver the year before. Unlike Manning Tom was able to come back and win against Atlanta, funny how your QB couldn’t.

  101. edheadweb says: May 20, 2017 10:42 AM

    Many NFL wives would have simply said, “no he is fine and has never had a concussion”. Thereby ensuring the pay checks keep rolling in and if he does develop any type of brain injury, she will truly be wearing the pants in the family.

  102. It should read"the triumphant return of Lemmy Akyadis" says: May 20, 2017 11:31 AM

    I knew a kid in grammar school who always got A’s. He studied every night and always did his homework.

    I also knew kids who never studied or did their homework and consequently failed on every test and report card.

    The latter had a pet name for the former. Cheater.

    Evidently they haven’t grown out of it yet.

    No concussions in 2016…. so did it happened in the post season? That was 2017 after all.

    Tee hee 🙂 It’s so adorable knowing Patriot Hater thinks about the World Champions and their superior fans as much as they do! 🙂

    Kind of like how the school weakling thinks about the bully that just stole their girl. It just can’t be helped!

  111. concussion182 says: May 20, 2017 8:38 PM

    Knowing the Patriots are going to decline really gets under your skin. No stopping it.

    Wow….it’s definitely under their skin. You can tell by the thumbs down vote. Awesome. Easy prey.
