Brady wants to move on after 'Deflategate' ruling

"Everything that's happened over the past seven months, obviously I have a lot of personal feelings, but I really don't care to share many of those," Brady said Sunday.

Two Patriots employees — officials' locker room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski — were suspended for their role in the deflated balls.

"I certainly feel terrible for them that they're not able to be with us right now," Brady said.

Asked if he had been in contact with either man, Brady declined to answer.

The ruling means Brady will get to celebrate with the rest of the team when the Patriots raise their championship banner Thursday night. The Patriots have said they would have changed the ceremony if the Super Bowl MVP had been suspended.

Montee Ball among Broncos cuts

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver waived running back Montee Ball and center Gino Gradkowski on Sunday to make room for two players they were awarded off waivers.

The Broncos bolstered their offensive line by claiming center James Ferentz, a former Hawkeye who was cut by the Houston Texans. And they propped up a thin tight end group by adding Mitchell Henry from the Green Bay Packers.

Ball's ouster wasn't a surprise.

The second-round pick in 2013 never lived up to expectations in Denver after scoring an NCAA-record 83 touchdowns at Wisconsin.

After pledging to win back his starting job from C.J. Anderson, Ball slipped from second to fourth string in the Broncos' backfield.

Packers, Jones agree on deal

MILWAUKEE — A person familiar with the contract talks said the Green Bay Packers and receiver James Jones have agreed to terms on a oneyear deal.

The person spoke to the Associated Press on Sunday night on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't announced the deal.

NFL.com and ESPN.com first reported that Jones and the Packers agreed to terms. He was cut Saturday by the New York Giants. In other news:

Raiders: Wide receiver Andre Holmes practiced Sunday for the first time since breaking his hand three weeks ago.

Redskins: Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday he will decide whether Robert Griffin III or Colt McCoy backs up quarterback Kirk Cousins for Week 1 after Griffin visits a neurologist "early this week."

The Redskins open the regular season at home against Miami on Sunday.

Griffin missed Washington's final two preseason games after sustaining a concussion against Detroit on Aug. 20.

He was originally cleared to return two days before the Redskins' Aug. 29 game against Baltimore, before a team neurologist reversed his decision.

Griffin has participated in practices since the injury.
