Former Indianapolis Colts great Reggie Wayne apparently still has some contempt left for Tom Brady.
The retired wide receiver and current NFL Network analyst felt the sting of Brady’s greatness numerous times over the years, including several heartbreaking postseason losses to the New England Patriots. Wayne was wearing his dislike for the organization and its leader on his sleeve when he spouted off last week about the possibility of Brady as an MVP candidate.
Whether Wayne is accurate here is a debate that at this point seems likely to take place for real when it comes time to select the league MVP later this season. Brady’s numbers—1,319 yards and 12 touchdowns in four games—have him on track for serious consideration of the honor.
But it’ll be interesting to see if the NFL follows the lead of Major League Baseball in this regard and boxes him out of MVP balloting for the whole Deflategate fiasco.
