FOXBORO — Tom Brady said Thursday afternoon that he did not “alter the ball in any way” when it came to the footballs used in last week’s AFC title game.
Addressing a room full of reporters for roughly 30 minutes, the Patriots quarterback said he was “very comfortable” that no one did anything wrong, and added that he was not a cheater.
“I don’t believe so,” he said. “I would never do anything to break the rules. … I would never do anything outside of the rules of play.
“I didn’t alter the ball in any way,” added Brady, who said he didn’t know anything was amiss until he heard the initial report on Monday morning.

With the excess of outfielders, along the journey back from back surgery, has pushed the outfielder to make his progress and motivation. It’s a tone the Red Sox evidently don’t mind at all.

Speaking at the Boston Baseball Writers Dinner’s media availability Thursday, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington insinuated that no significant alternations would be made the club’s current starting rotation.
‘We’re pursuing some stuff but I think it’s more what you would classify as depth related. That’s what we’re focused on this minute,’ Cherington noted.
‘The free agent market has been pricey this winter, obviously. Starting pitchers who perform at the highest level and do so consistently and are relatively young or near their primes, those guys are hard guys to get and they’re valuable and they cost a lot, where it’s dollars or talent. We’re trying to put ourselves...

The Patriots finally returned to the practice field Thursday for the first of four practices before they leave for Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale next Monday.
The full pads practice was inside at Dana-Farber Fieldhouse and the team had perfect attendance. The biggest news of the day was the return of center Bryan Stork, who missed the AFC championship with a knee injury suffered against the Ravens.
Stork was listed on a projected injury report Wednesday as not participating, meaning the team reported that he wouldn’t have practiced if the team had worked out.
Also on the indoor turf was Sealver Siliga (foot). The defensive tackle injured his foot in Sunday’s game, but returned to action against the Colts.
The Seahawks did hold practice on Wednesday and had five...
