John Jastremski and Jim McNally, the two men at the center of the supposed “Delfategate” plot to under-inflate footballs, will be reinstated by the NFL this week. The pair had been suspended since May without pay. There have been conflicting stories as to who suspended them, with the NFL saying it was the Patriots and the Patriots saying it was the NFL.
After meeting with league executive Troy Vincent, the two Patriots’ employees will be allowed to resume work with the team but will have to take on new roles. McNally, specifically, will no longer be allowed to be the locker room attendant for the officials.
Neither individual will face further discipline from the league.
