Ravens owner states ESPN story on #DeflateGate are untrue; Has not put pressure on Goodell

ravensESPN reporter Sal Paolantonio’s claimed that Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, Colts owner Jim Irsay, and other AFC owners have been lobbying Commissioner Roger Goodell to uphold the four-game suspension of Tom Brady, but the owner himself refutes the report. 

“I have not and will not put any pressure on Commissioner or anyone representing NFL office to take action in . . . ‘DeflateGate,’” Bisciotti said in a statement, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.

“The story circulating that I’ve put pressure on Roger [Goodell] is 100 percent wrong,” Bisciotti added. “The reports are unfair to [Patriots owner] Robert Kraft, who is [an] honorable person and to his franchise.”
