Colin Kaepernick defends Tom Brady

Tom Brady has found a supporter, of sorts, in a "probable" unlikely place as Deflategate roars on.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter on Friday to express his support for the New England Patriots quarterback who was found "more probable than not" to have known about footballs being deflated in the recently released Wells report.

The question remains: if the deflated balls did not help, then why cheat to do it?

Many have called for a suspension of Brady, who denied knowing anything about the controversy.

The Patriots have already been hit with the Spygate scandal, and by beating the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1, they won their first Lombardi Trophy since then, their fourth championship under Brady.
