Gisele says Tom Brady had concussion last year

"Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion a year ago", agent Don Yee told ESPN on Friday. She added that she doesn't feel that the aggressive nature of football is healthy.

On Friday, Adam Schefter spoke with Brady's agent who said that Brady had not been diagnosed with a concussion this past season.

"There is this. Rodney seems to be suggesting many players could potentially suffer concussions during games and they're not properly diagnosed". And I knew that something was not right, and I knew that I was concussed. They would also lose draft picks in the process. But, as Bundchen said, the game is inherently unsafe and players do not want to come out for any injury. "You'd hate to stop doing something you love to do because of an injury".

We know this because ESPN (with Stats Pass) did the legwork of digging through every injury report that has included Brady.

A recent study says that concussions during youth football can affect brain matter. I mean, we don't talk about - he does have concussions. That brought up a whole host of questions, including whether the league's concussion protocol was actually working and whether we can realistically expect a player to pull himself out of a game after suffering a head injury. But he does have concussions.

Brady played in 12 regular-season games and three postseason games in 2016, winning Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons with the biggest comeback in the contest's history.

So Gisele's statement that Tom Brady has a more extensive concussion history than many know and suffered a concussion that was unreported in 2016 should come as a surprise to absolutely no one who follows the National Football League regularly. Regardless if the injuries would have affected missing out on playing a game, reporting them is significant to "the integrity of the game".

Gisele Bundchen is trying to get her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, to retire by saying that he has had concussions even though he hasn't. "There are not records that indicate that Mr. Brady suffered a head injury or concussion, or exhibited or complained of concussion symptoms".
