According to a report by Jay Glazer of FOX Sports on Monday, there is surveillance video from the Jan. 18 AFC Championship Game of a Patriots locker-room attendant taking footballs from the official’s locker room into another room at Gillette Stadium before bringing them out on to the field.
According to the report, the NFL has “zeroed in” on one particular Patriots locker-room attendant and the person of interest has already been interviewed by the league. The NFL is attempting to determine “whether any wrongdoing by this individual occurred,” the report stated.
The NFL is not expected to make a ruling on “Deflate-gate” until after this coming Sunday’s Super Bowl game between the Patriots and Seahawks. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will speak to the media in his annual “State of the League” address later this week.
