Patriots owner Robert Kraft spoke today in San Francisco at the owners meetings to address the penalties handed to the team as a result of deflategate. Saying that he has chosen to do what is best for the team and the league, he wants to end the rhetoric and will "reluctantly accept" the punishment handed down by commissioner Roger Goodell. After his comments Kraft left the podium without taking questions.

Meanwhile Schefter is also reporting that the suspensions to Jim McNally and John Jastremski were made at the request of the NFL and carried out by the Patriots.
