The Boston Herald released a statement Friday afternoon addressing Ron Borges' column from earlier in the day, which appeared in the Friday edition of the paper.

"A column by Ron Borges in today’s Herald regarding Patriot Tom Brady’s salary discussions was based on information which proved to be false," it reads. "The Herald apologizes to Brady, his agent Don Yee and the Patriots, and to our readers for this erroneous report. Borges’ column has been suspended pending further review."

Kirk & Callahan revealed Friday morning that a texter "Nick in Boston" was pretending to be Tom Brady's agent Don Yee when texting Borges. The texts informed Borges that Brady was intent on sitting out the Patriots' OTAs unless he was compensated like his former backup, Jimmy Garoppolo, who agreed to the largest deal in NFL history (5 years, $137.5 million) Thursday.

Here is K&C discussing the matter.
