A column by Ron Borges in today's Herald regarding Patriot Tom Brady's salary discussions was based on information which proved to be false. Turns out, it was "Nick in Boston", a regular caller to a local sports talk radio show.

Borges' column has been suspended pending further review.

That story has since been taken down and retracted after WEEI revealed that one of its own listeners had hoaxed the poor columnist with a text believing it to be from Brady's agent, and that the whole premise of Borges' column was false and fabricated. Brady's former understudy is now the highest paid player in National Football League history after just a handful of starts for the San Francisco 49ers.

Garoppolo signed a record-breaking, five-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday that will pay him a reported $137.5 million. "Here's the amusing part".

The Yee impersonator also purportedly said that "12 was not going to return unless McDaniels was named the head coach in waiting", which also made it into Borges' column. "But I called him and I was just like, 'Hey, Ronnie, it's Don'".

Kirk & Callahan posted screenshots of the texts that "Nick in Boston" sent to Borges.

Shortly after the story's publication, other members of the Patriots media sphere that the story was untrue (or "off the reservation"). However, the damage has already been done in print. The column and its misled reporting were plastered all over the front and back pages of the Friday edition of the paper.

Obviously it's not cool that someone went out of their way to prank Borges like this.
