Tom Brady Linked to BALCO

Posted Aug 17, 2006

In surprising news, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's name has emerged in the periphery of the BALCO investigation according to a published report from New York.

The Daily News is reporting that in a statement to prosecutors about his intention to keep quiet, Barry Bonds' trainer Greg Anderson mentioned Brady by name, dragging the Patriots quarterback into the far-reaching investigation of top athletes from various sports. Anderson reportedly told prosecutors that the two had talked on the telephone, but never made further contact.

"I had only one brief conversation with Tom Brady regarding a potential future workout," Anderson reportedly said in the statement to prosecutors. "I never had another phone conversation with him and never discussed it with anyone."

In the report Anderson's attorney, Paula Canny, said Brady's name was among "10 to 20" other athletes that Anderson was informed that he may have to answers questions about. Canny also mentioned that Brady's name could have come to investigators' attention from phone records seized by the government.
