Former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh sent the NFL eight videotapes that show New England violated league rules by recording opposing coaches’ playcalling signals. The tapes were of five opponents and six games between 2000 and 2002.
The New York Times confirmed a list of the teams that were taped: San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, and the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 2002 AFC Championship game.
But wait…where is the Rams’ walk-through before the Super Bowl?
According to Walsh’s lawyer, Michael Levy:
“Mr. Walsh has never claimed to have a tape of the walk-through. Mr. Walsh has never been the source of any of the media speculation about such a tape. Mr. Walsh was not the source for the Feb. 2 Boston Herald article.”
