Brad Johnson admitted to cheating in Bucs Super Bowl by deflating balls

Brad Johnson, who led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the NFL championship over the Raiders in 2003, told the Tampa Bay Times in 2012 that he had difficulty gripping brand new footballs. Johnson said the NFL provided 100 footballs for the big game and he wanted to be sure the balls were scuffed before kickoff.

“I paid some guys off to get the balls right,” Johnson said. “I went and got all 100 footballs, and they took care of all of them.”

The former quarterback, now 46, says he forked over $7,500 to get the job done.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Johnson first revealed his scheme a few years ago before the Bucs’ Super Bowl team’s 10-year reunion.

It sounds like this is normal in the NFL….
