Tom Brady and Ron DeSantis Are Said to Be on Texting Terms
The New England Patriots owner, the Florida governor, and the Broward County, Fla., commissioner all have been embroiled in a scandal involving the alleged text messages of the three. But on Tuesday night, the Miami Dolphins and head coach, Adam Gase, were caught on tape telling a reporter how the teams were on “Texting terms.”
Those on the front lines of the investigation and the texts themselves show just how close the three men were.
And Gase admitted that Gase and Brady were in contact and that he, too, texted the Patriots owner just that morning before the Dolphins’ season-opening win over the Patriots, according to Gennaro Valerio and Andrew Marchand of the New York Times.
“One of the texts that became public was from Adam and I,” Brady said. “It was after the Patriots loss Sunday, after Adam texted me and said ‘Guess it is time to be back at it.’ ”
The text exchange about the Patriots, while not as damning, shows it was more than a text from Brady to Gase. It seems Patriots owner Robert Kraft was just being friendly to a friend, and in a text message exchange of some sorts.
It was, apparently, a pre-Thanksgiving dinner exchange between Kraft and Gase from earlier in the week, according to Marcy Gordon of NJ.com.
“I’ll take a ride with you guys on the road,” Kraft said, according to Gordon.
During Gase’s tenure in Miami, he called for the firing of Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and was eventually let go, according to Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter of ESPN. The firing came a day after Brady, when asked about the texts, said he thought there was more to the investigation.
