BOSTON (CBS) — Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson took a jab at Tom Brady during the Deflategate ordeal. He’s likely regretting those four-year-old tweets — among other things — on Thursday.
That’s because the the eight-time Pro Bowler was suspended for six games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Peterson took a shot at the Patriots quarterback in 2015 during the whole Deflategate mess, saying the NFL probably wouldn’t do anything about the incident. After a long legal battle against the NFL, Brady served his four-game suspension to start the 2016 season.
Peterson even doubled down by saying Brady “disrespected” the league.
And after the heavy punishment was handed out to Brady, Peterson applauded the league.
Well that’s a shame.
Now Peterson will have to serve his own suspension for “disrespecting” the league, leaving the Cardinals without one of their best defensive players six games.
