Ex-Dolphins assistant rips Ted Wells: “Not a good human being”

The last time Ted Wells conducted an investigation for the NFL, it cost Jim Turner his job as the Dolphins’ offensive line coach. Now Turner, who was fired because of Wells’s findings in the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying case, is firing back at Wells.

Asked on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio about Wells’s Deflategate investigation, Turner said that when the NFL hires Wells, Wells sets out to find a scapegoat for the league.

“Wells is not a good human being, and when I didn’t give him the stories he wanted, he targeted me as part of a problem in Miami. He’s not an independent investigator, he’s not doing this looking at both sides of the situation, he’s hired by the NFL and he’s going to print the story that they want printed,” Turner said.

Turner says Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was smart not to give Wells the access to phone records that Wells sought. According to Turner, Wells is the type to take things out of context in order to make the people he’s investigating look bad.

“If you bring a car to a mechanic and there’s nothing wrong with it and you ask him to find some problems, guess what? He’s going to find some problems,” Turner said.

Wells found plenty of problems after investigating both the Dolphins and the Patriots. Turner has always said Wells was unfair. Now the Patriots agree.

  1. Wells is hoping for another 8 month investigation on whether the AFC East likes or dislikes one another. Fins and Pats collaborating on Wells reports. Pats and Jets go at it on Revis. Bills think blow hard HC will bring Wells to their business.

  2. Hey Jim. Aside from being a horrible coach you were not man enough to hold Incognito in check. That’s why you got fired.

  3. Any neutral person who reads the entirety of the Wells Report is aware of that. And anyone who tries to use the Preponderance of Evidence excuse is ignoring the fact that even in a civil case both sides get to prove their case. Civil cases don’t just give the plaintiff the opportunity to prove something more than likely happened, instead there is actually a defense. Once a jury hears from the plaintiff and the defense then, and only then do we decide if it “more than likely happened”

  4. Whether or not you like the Pats or Fins, anyone with an objective mind can see that Wells is a massively overpaid league schill whose only goal is to provide the commissioner with the specific answer he wants while suppressing any other info that might exonerate the target or show league bias.

  5. I always thought there would be a second Civil War in this country, but who would have fought the trigger would have been the NFL and DEFLATEGATE and that the second war might be even bloodier than the first. When New England secedes from the Union and Bob Kraft becomes President of the new Confederacy, he will be joined by many people across the land who disagree with the Wells Report.

  6. Hmmmmm This guy lost his job because of Wells. No bias there. Oh ! New England and Brady had never objected to Wells until after he released his findings.

  7. A great article today in USA Today informs us the fault for deflate gate lies with the NFL. I quote directly from that article:
    Professor: NFL ambiguity creates ‘breeding ground for rules violations’

    …The ambiguity with which the NFL has enforced its rules and disciplined violators, actions he says have created “a breeding ground for the rules violations.”
    “By a lot of people’s accounts, this kind of manipulation or tampering the footballs is commonplace throughout the league,” Klein told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s happened for a long time. That the NFL has been, to use their terms, generally aware of it, but hasn’t done anything about it … you get a kind of tacit approval.
    “The NFL only seems to react when (rules violations) become too egregious or it gets caught on tape or someone blows the whistle.”

    As the reader can see, the NFL only cares of it’s notified and forced to act; otherwise they generally know it’s going on and just don’t care. This jibs with Jimmy Johnson’s statement after Spygate that the Cowboy did it too and the league knew it and did nothing about it (as there were no complaints). So, this league attitude allows teams to slide just a little here and there in terms of rules like how the footballs are treated for game day. Is this not the league failing to protect the integrity of the game, the very charge they level at the Pats?. This should make it obvious to all that Goodell has to go; one and for all!

  8. isn’t the fact that he went back to october after a game where the refs gave the pats 16psi balls proof he was finding anything to make his point even if it was completely out of context .

  9. Nobel Laureate Roderick MacKinnon addressing the Wells Report’s scientific conclusions. MacKinnon writes that “The Wells Report conclusion that physical law cannot explain the pressures is incorrect.” Wells is a scumbag bought and paid for by Roger the Crook. Don’t worry about the truth or Science. let the leakes from the NFL serve as your guide. Mortensen we know for a fact 11 of 12 balls were deflated. Your very own Wells report calls you a LIAR MORT. Page 112 Scientist agree no Tampering of Football occurred. Kiss the Rings going back to Back Pats#

  10. Gee, the NFL hires a guy to protect its own self interest. What a shocker.

  11. But Wells wants you to believe that after being fired that he has no axe to grind?

    I think it’s clear from all the outlandish cover excuses the Pat’s have thrown out there this morning it’s clear the Pat’s or Brady have zero intention of going to court. For if they did they’d not be spinning this nonsense out there for once released it’s a permanent part of the record.

  12. Spot on analysis…… Ted Wells is paid over a million dollars a pop to build a case around Goodell’s desired outcome.
    .

  13. If you have to say that someone isn’t a good human being, then that means you’re actually the one who isn’t a good person

  14. You actually think the NFL wants to punish Tom Brady? He was considered the golden boy until this fiasco.
    Turner, the NFL did not want to suspend Brady but they had too. Precedent must be established when it comes to cheating on the football field.

  15. I’m available for work if any NFL team or the league wants somebody that can remain totally independent and fair that will keep things real with truth and honesty from an uncompromisable and logical perspective for the pursuit of justice or rational explanations!

  16. Brady WAS CAUGHT CHEATING ON HIS FINALS AT MICHIGAN

    Brady left his very pregnant girlfriend for his current wife

    …yea Brady is a saint who would never skirt the rules.

    HE IS GUILTY…get over it. This is absurd…take your punishment like a man. I lose more and more respect for the Pats and Brady with every move they are doing. TAKE YOUR PUNISHMENT and move on.

    Now a smear campaign….Robert Kraft, you have gone from Hero to ZERO in my eyes.

  17. Good to know they are interviewing people with no particular ax to grind.

  18. Whoa now, the MEDIA wants someone to blame, NOT the NFL.

    The NFL ppl think that this is a non-issue but the media is using it to generate revenue for themselves.

  19. “Mr. Goodell Mr. Goodell, look look look!!! The Dolphins organization is still participating in ‘bullying’! Look at this hateful bullying *snicker* being directed at me!! Please hand their club a big fine for me please. Thanks.”

    Love,
    Ted Wells.

  20. everybody has an ax to grind. Why the NFL just doesn’t hire a firm out of mid-west with no existing or hopes for future ties to the NFL to do these investigations is beyond me. Its the only way to 100% guarantee total objectivity and Independence from the league.

  21. Screw Wells! Haha. Can’t wait for the suspension to be overturned. Goddell must go. That is the only thing everyone can agree on.

  22. Why would someone who is a supposed competent lawyer feel the need to defend himself after a little criticism, Brady is the one who was smeared, the Patriots are the ones who have been wronged by the sting and this shyster ..me thinks he doth protest too much

  23. And the reason Goodell has it in for the Pats and Brady so bad that he hired Wells to frame them is ….

    hmmmm.

    Now there is an interesting question. The Patriot’s universe hinges on the theory that there was an unfair bias at the league office and by Roger against the Patriots. Why the bias?

  24. Hmmmmm This guy lost his job because of Wells. No bias there. Oh ! New England and Brady had never objected to Wells until after he released his findings.

    0 0
    The Patriots had no reason to object at the outset as the expectation was that the report would be fair and balanced. Wells is being critisized not for what his findings are but rather the totally biased way in which he went about the task. This man’s, conclusions support that this is the MO of Wells

  25. I could go with the “ted wells is looking for a scapegoat for the NFL”, but if that were the case he would have said the ball boys did it and Tom is innocent (the nfl may want a scapegoat- but they dont want it to be their #1 player). It woulda been easy to place blame on the ball boys, say they did it alone and move on. It makes ZERO sense to make Tom Brady a scapegoat lol.

  26. Oh yeah that’s a credible source. Let’s get the opinion of someone who lost his job because of an investigation from the same person. Vegas odds that this was going to be a negative slant was 100000 – 1 (so you’re saying there’s a chance). Listen, if anything Wells still gave Brady some possibility of this being circumstantial, but common sense is Brady was behind this and he broke a rule he knew about, plain and simple. To me, 4 games is weak.

  27. Remember after Spygate the Patriots beat all your Teams by 40 points, and you were all crying about that, The Pats are cheating and now they’re not, how come they are beating us fair and square by 30, 40 OMG 50 points. Guess what It’s coming again. Only team in NFL to go 16-0.

  28. Hmmmmm This guy lost his job because of Wells. No bias there. Oh ! New England and Brady had never objected to Wells until after he released his findings.

    /\ THIS

  29. Did the NFL think the Pats were going to just say ‘THANK YOU SIR MAY I HAVE ANOTHER’?
    That they would just meekly accept this nonsense of facts made from fuzzy assumptions?
    They are coming at them with both barrels in outside the protection of the league office this report will be torn to shreds by lawyers and experts that aren’t paid by the league. FREE TOM BRADY!!!!!

  30. OK, seriously, does anyone here really believe that Wells is an independent investigator? That the NFL would’ve been pleased with anything other than what was found – weak as it is?

  31. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. It’s quite possible Pats equipment guys deflated footballs AND Ted Wells is a worthless shill for Goodell.

  32. Hey Jim. Aside from being a horrible coach you were not man enough to hold Incognito in check. That’s why you got fired

    Jim Turner was an officer in The Marine Corps so your ” not man enough ” comments are way off base…..carry on

  33. I’m sure the NFL want3d their marquee player and multiple Super Bowl MVP to get caught cheating. No doubt that was the plan. Pats fans are delusional.

  34. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. It’s quite possible Pats equipment guys deflated footballs AND Ted Wells is a worthless shill for Goodell.

    Bob Kraft – “We understand and greatly respect the responsibility of being one of 32 in this league and, on that basis, we will accept the findings of the report and take the appropriate actions based on those findings as well as any discipline levied by the league.”

    The Patriots lying and their fans incapable of understanding it? What a unique occurrence.

  36. Maybe, just maybe, the 31 owners and Roger Goodell wanted to bring parity back to the NFL that has seen the Patriots with Tom Brady at the helm, dominate the league for the last 15 years. No they haven’t won the Super Bowl each of those years but they’ve always been “in the conversation” which is a thorn in the side for the competition committee. Of course they could change the rules, suspend their quarterback for a few games, take away some draft picks, make them play with deflated footballs…oh wait

    hmmmm.

    Now there is an interesting question. The Patriot’s universe hinges on the theory that there was an unfair bias at the league office and by Roger against the Patriots. Why the bias?
    ———-
    Goodell, a former Jets employee and fan, as the new commissioner sought out to make a big statement, making the Patriots an easy target for their infraction in 2007.

    He made it such a huge deal (when it was common practice back then), especially with the burning of the tapes, that it lingers even today. That same bloodthirsty media that saw the tapes still to this day recall them as being very underwhelming.

    Fast forward to today, Goodell has been blundering around as commissioner, embarrassing the league the whole bumbling way. Here come the Patriots again, his chance to kick an old dog for easy credibility.

    Just think back before the AFC Championship Game. Could anyone say with a straight face that they thought Goodell was doing even an acceptable job? He’s been a wreck. The Patriots are the team everyone loves to hate, he got on all their good sides with Deflategate.

  38. With all of the BS, all of the lies, all of the instances the league office has been caught lying to the public , why would anyone believe anything that Roger and his staff have say about anything?

    Goodell continually lies to all fans about every issue, and now because it’s the Patriots and Tom Brady, everyone is supposed to just trust Roger and his office? There are so many holes in this story, and not once has the league office said they messed up the game ball procedures, that they will do better in protecting the rules set in place for the game. The owners need to flush Goodel and his staff out of the NYC offices and start fresh with a new league office voice.

  39. The NFL went overboard with the Saints. Suspending a coach for a year another indefinitely benching several players. They got slammed. They went light on Irsay and Ray Rice and got slammed. They when middle on the Pats and are getting slammed.

    Nobody is going to ever be happy so forget it.

  40. futures44: Hurts, don’t it, that there’s only one undefeated team in NFL history that ALSO won the Super Bowl. 18-1 might as well be 180-1 for all the good it did. And yes, the 2007 Patriots would probably wipe the floors with the 1972 Dolphins 10 times out of 10 (bigger, faster athletes, rules changes, etc.) BUT how many Super Bowls did the 2007 Patriots win? Hmmmm…let me see…oh, that’s right, NONE! 18 Wins And One Giant Loss. The Patriots lost that Super Bowl to a quarterback that always looks like a little kid lost in a supermarket. And the Pats weren’t content to lose to Eli Manning and the Giants just once. They had so much fun they did it a SECOND time!!!

  41. with Tom Brady memorabilia sales sky rocketing it seems this was brilliant nfl marketing.

    Tom Brady’s suspension ends with him playing his first game against the Colts. The team who started this sillyness. So it seems to me the NFL definitely set this up perfectly.

    Not to mention the league is trying really hard to make the game as competitive as possible. Free agency and salary cap was supposed to fix the “dynasty problems”. The Patriots are the one team who have continued to succeed (for 15 years now) and the league probably doesn’t like that.

  42. Let’s see, a coach who was fired by the Dolphins for his role in bullygate and has not been able to find another job since…

    Can you say, “self serving”?

  43. Seeing these comments from the former Miami assistant, and of course all the comments on the board, maybe the best thing would be a periodic realignment of the divisions so that the venomous feelings that build up over a period of years have a chance to dissipate as fans refocus on new arch-enemies. So put the Patriots in with Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Buffalo, the Jets in with Jacksonville, Miami and Cleveland and so on. It doesn’t have to be three new opponents, just something to mix it up a little. The intra-conference rivalries are rarely interesting anymore. They’re tedious.

  44. SocalPatsFan.

    I think Goodell is a buffoon, and as a fan of the fierce Steelers defence thought he had it in for the Black and Gold. He and Kraft always seemed close.

    Clearly New Orleans, Dallas and Washington got creamed by Goodell.

  45. LOL

    “I’m glad Tom didn’t give him his phone. I gave him my phone and he had the audacity to use information on it against me! I mean, what’s with that?”

  46. Wells’ law firm bills the NFL millions every year. The NFL is his biggest client. And the checks written during this investigation sure as heck weren’t written by Robert Kraft.
    It’s ludicrous to suggest Wells was objective and fully impartial here.

  47. “When the NFL hires Wells, Wells sets out to find a scapegoat for the league.”

    If you had a 44 million dollar yearly salary to protect – like Roger the clown, and want to be certain to suck up to as many owners as you can in the process, that’s how you do it.

  48. This is a kangaroo court. Look at the history: with the saints bounty issue (I refuse to call anything ‘gate’ anymore – just sounds too f-ing stupid for an adult) Will Smith, Johnathon Vilma, Scott Fujita all got their suspensions overturned! This is the league that has their own quack say that there is no proof between CTE and playing football. Then when Goodell pretends to be all about player safety he wants to add two games and put one on a Tuesday.

    He hires ‘investigators’ to come to his preconceived conclusion.

    Ray Rice gets two games for belting his fiancée but when the tape comes out Goodell gives him 8 more – as if because it was on tape makes it more heinous (“Oh, I didn’t know it was on tape”).

    Goodell makes more money per year than Manning and Brady combined.

    Goodells leadership of the NFL is not unlike the International Olympic Committee and FIFA.

    The owners made him wealthy with television and merchandising. The players (which to him is just ‘the product’) made him wealthy.

    The one silver lining is hogs eventually get slaughtered.

  49. As long as Wells and his firm get the $5 million, he’ll wrap it up anyway the NFL wants. League wanted the Jet, Raven, and Colt whine babies to get there way so as not to seem biased towards Pats. Immaterial that such a trivial item gets blown up so out of proportion, just that sore losers felt this was their way to get back at Pats. Vincent dinged them enough so that once appeal goes in and reduces the penalty they are guaranteed at least 1 or 2 game suspension, few hundred thousand, and 1 draft pick. Next time something happens its YOUR team, remember that. Under this Commissioner they make things up as they go along.

  50. Roger Goodell is not just a guy who worked for the New York Jets. He was the son of a very powerful and popular now deceased U.S. Senator Charles Goodell of New York . I believe the punishiment the Patriots and Bill Belichick got in the Spygate scandal was partly because of the influence of the US Senate and the wishes of the deceased U.S. Senator Arlen Spector of Pennslyvania who got involved and wanted answers from the NFL about Spygate. You do remember the Patriots beat Senator Spector’s favorite team the Philadelpia Eagles in the Superbowl. Get more information if you want to think your so smart. These proceedings go back a long way.

  51. Google “Ted Wells” and take a look at the list of clients he’s defended before the NFL became a client. No wonder he is what he is.
    When you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas.

  52. re Ted Wells, does any one believe that he would have gotten this gig if he hadnt told the league what they wanted to hear concerning the Dolphins investigation?
    If you dont kiss Roger’s nether regions, then you dont get to keep getting paid by Roger, it is as clear as the driven snow.

  53. Have some fun and go read THAT Wells report for what this guy did.

    There was a lineman being hazed by the others and called gay.

    This coach gave all the other linemen female blow up dolls and this lineman a MALE blow up doll.

    All the linemen confirmed this. This guy told Wells he didn’t remember.

    And Wells is the one who is “not a good person”?

    ——————-
    Yup….the Giants have been able to find ways to beat the Brady and the Pats. Your team…..not so much. Your team still stinks…..and will for years to come. Congrats.

  55. How many prison inmates have something nice to say about their prosecutor?

  56. I guess this guy isn’t suing like the trainer is. Or he wouldn’t be speaking up.

  57. Look at pats fans. That last fins QB that claimed seeing Brady cheat is a bum. But this guy is their hero.

  58. For as big a stink as NE is making of this, they had better be correct, unless it is all for show…If they takes this far enough, they better hope that there is not more evidence incriminating them.
    Either way, this could get ugly

  59. Ted Wells needs to be fired. Roger Goodell needs to resign. The NFL was clearly out to get the Patriots from the get-go. Ball inflation/deflation has been going on for years as Aaron Rodgers admitted and the NFL didn’t give a damn. Suddenly when it’s the Patriots, they give a damn. This was clearly a sting between Harbaugh, the Colts and the NFL, brought together by their hatred of the Patriots. It’s disgusting to watch them try to tear down the NFL’s model franchise. I hope Brady and Kraft sue the NFL.

  60. People forget that Wells is making millions off these weighed investigations. If he doesn’t agree with Goodell, then the cash cow goes away. He is not a very good lawyer, so that wouldn’t be a great career choice for him. Based on his dossier, it appears he isn’t going to win a Pulitzer anytime soon.

  61. I do not know if the Pats cheated or not and tend to take the agnostic view of that although if pressed I would lean towards the accusations being true given they fired the 2 equipment guys which doesn’t match the team saying they’re innocent. I do not like the team so it would please me if all this was confirmed to be indeed but the evidence so far isn’t compelling enough for me to conclude that.

    So given my dislike of the team, I have to say this Wells guy does sound like he is hired just to conclude what the NFL wants to hear and that he does take things that can have multiple forms of context and twists them to suit what he wants them to be. The Tom/John texts and call logs after this story broke is a perfect example of this as nothing there indicates Brady complicity yet Wells twists it to be that knowing full well the league and public will put value in what he finds because that’s the nature of how people work: you assume competence and unbias from people who have credentials.

    This guy got paid millions of dollars for this and it was a very poorly done investigation if going by the released report and I agree with all the criticism towards him. Even if he turns out to be correct in his findings, the report is still poorly done as is the given evidence. Seems like he is just banking big money off a league run by an incompetent fool in Goodell.

  62. Tom Brady won’t miss a single game. The Wells Report will be torn into shreds by the time the Brady legal team goes to work on it.

  63. Look in the Dictionary under “personal accountability” and you won’t see the picture of Turner or Brady.

  64. All this talk about Wells or Exponent only finding what their clients want to hear.

    And no one giving any reason at all why the NFL would WANT to hear that anyone was tampering with game balls if it were not the case, least of all one of their poster boys.

    If I were Roger Goodell, what I would have WANTED to hear was the science explained everything, no one had time to tamper, etc, And I’d have wanted to hear it weeks before the draft.

    Thats the key problem with the conspiracy theory. No motive.

  65. By “didn’t give him the stories he wanted”, I’m betting Wells wanted the story often called “the truth” and there was a low probability that Turner could fulfill that request while also achieving his goal of escaping punishment.

  66. before this Patriots investigation Ted Wells and his firm were famous for two major “independent” investigations

    proving smoking does not cause lung cancer
    proving playing NFL football does not cause concussions

    regardless of what laundry you root for, the words “Ted Wells independent investigation” should make you vomit in your mouth, or if lucky in the direction of Ted Wells.

  67. The truth is in the pudding as they say. Think about how many stories about this have been posted on this very site within the past week. Then think about who really wanted someone to blame for this. Get it?

  68. The most damning aspect of the rebuttal is that the NFL began the investigation under false pretenses. They NFL claimed (in its private letter to the team – although it was what was leaked to the press by someone) that all of the Patriots balls had dropped below the minimum allowed and one was as low as 10.1. Further, that none of the Colts balls had dropped below the minimum.

    All of those statements are wrong or misleading. 1) No Patriot ball dropped that low. 2) One official found three of four Colt balls had dropped below the legal limit and the fourth measurement appeared to be in error and 3) while the Patriot balls had all indeed dropped below the minimum, it would have been a violation of physics had any not since they were set at the lowest psi allowed and the NFL was aware of this law of physics.

    So, the entire investigation began with a flawed assessment.

  69. Imagine that a lawyer that lies and is one sided. It’s pretty much the job description if you ask me. If you choose to believe a lawyer over a beloved icon.

  70. Yeah the lowest one was 10.5 not 10.1 oops. But it did get to sit till the 10/11 ball measured were it would warm up and…… oops again.

  71. This is an excert from Wikapedia:
    “Theodore V. “Ted” Wells, Jr. (born April 28, 1950) is a criminal attorney. A litigation partner at the New York law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, the National Law Journal has selected Wells as one of America’s best white-collar defense attorneys on numerous occasions.[1] Wells received his B.A. from College of the Holy Cross, his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, and his J.D. from Harvard Law School.[2] He and his wife, former Secretary of State of New Jersey Nina Mitchell Wells, reside in Livingston, New Jersey.”

    This is the best I could find for Coach Turner:
    NFL Coaching Experience: This is Turner’s first job in the NFL but his second in the professional ranks. Back in 1989, two years after graduating from Boston College and one year after coaching his high school alma mater of Braintree (Mass.) High, Turner served as the offensive coordinator and was a player/coach in London, England with the Kent Rams.

    This a case of bringing an intellectual pocket knife to a intellectual sword fight. Brady probably does not stack up much better. At least Brady has the union attorney and his own agent who can best represent his interests. Ted Wells does not play football. He plays hard ball!

    Remember after Spygate the Patriots beat all your Teams by 40 points, and you were all crying about that, The Pats are cheating and now they’re not, how come they are beating us fair and square by 30, 40 OMG 50 points. Guess what It’s coming again. Only team in NFL to go 16-0.
    ——————————————————————–

    Not all teams.

    Giants 17, Patriots 14

    18-1

  73. When this was going on there wasn’t all this nonsense from the organization and fans like you see with deflategate. Although I do love the mad dog russo rant.

  74. Before anyone goes feeling good about a former Dolphins staffer agreeing with the Patriots position, bear in mind that he spoke with an extremely heavy New England accent. Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a Patriots fan, and in that case he’d have double the reason to hate Wells. All that being said, I liked him while he was with us, but he deserved to lose his job. He was directly in charge of the problem group.

  75. Here is what I think- Brady assumed that most quarterbacks adjust their game footballs in some minor way for a better feel. Personally I can forgive him for that and give him a small fine. End of story~
    However he did not handle it that way-call it arrogance, narcissistic or just plain stupid-he handled his defense poorly. However, a 4 game suspension is ridiculous. The league should cut it to 2 games and be done with it. The team fine should be reduced to $500,000 with a draft pick lost. Then let’s move on, please. I am tired of the stupid acrimony from fans about Wells the lawyer and Brady the football player.
