(Newser) – A boa constrictor can take up to a week to digest a meal, and it looks like Tom Brady might take just as long with the NFL report that says he probably knew the Patriots were using underinflated footballs. "I don't have really any reaction," he said at Salem State University yesterday when asked about the issue, USA Today reports. "It's only been 30 hours, so I haven't had much time to digest it, but when I do I'll be sure to let you know how I feel about it—and everybody else." The quarterback, who appeared before a rowdy and very supportive crowd as part of the university's speaker series, said the controversy had "absolutely not" detracted from the joy of winning the Super Bowl, CNN reports. (Many sportswriters, however, say "Deflategate" has detracted from Brady's legacy.)
