New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady has peripherally emerged in the BALCO investigation, according to a report in the New York Daily News.
Federal prosecutors will try to convince a judge on Thursday to throw Barry Bonds' personal trainer back in jail for refusing to testify, this time before a newly assembled grand jury that is also reportedly investigating track coach Trevor Graham and other athletes.

And the Daily News says that in a statement to prosecutors about his intention to keep quiet, Bonds' trainer Greg Anderson invoked Brady's name, effectively dragging the three-time Super Bowl winner into what the newspaper called biggest drug scandal in U.S. sports history, saying the two had talked on the telephone, but never made further contact.

"I had only one brief conversation with Tom Brady regarding a potential future workout," Anderson reportedly said in the statement to prosecutors that was included in court documents unsealed on Wednesday in San Francisco. "I never had another phone conversation with him and never discussed it with anyone."

Even if Brady is only remotely tied to Anderson, the Daily News claims the star QB could be subjected to questions from the federal government, just like numerous other professional athletes.

Brady was mysteriously absent for several days near the start of training camp. No reason was given for his absence.

I like how the writer added that at the end. You know he/she was proud of that.

Brady and Bonds went to the same High School, maybe that's the reason his name was brought up.

It's funny how the best players in the big sports seem to always use steriods. It's too bad. Hopefully Tom has nothing to do with this.

I like Tom Brady. I hope he has nothing to do with this. I think the trainer is just trying to bring in as many names as possible.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Tom Brady was looking for a place to work out when he called Barry Bonds' personal trainer "five or six years ago" but the two never got together, the New England Patriots quarterback said Thursday.

"That was the first of it and the last of it," Brady said after practice. "I never heard from him again."

Government lawyers are investigating whether the San Francisco Giants slugger lied under oath when he told an earlier grand jury he didn't know whether his trainer, Greg Anderson, gave him substances that were steroids.

In a statement to federal prosecutors unsealed on Wednesday, Anderson said he had also spoken to Brady on the phone.

"I had only one brief conversation with Tom Brady regarding a potential future workout," Anderson said. "I never had another phone conversation with him and never discussed it with anyone."

Brady confirmed what Anderson said and stressed that he never did work out with Anderson. "No athlete likes to be brought up in stuff like that," he said.

Non-story? If Brady does take steroids, he'd be the Thinnest Man Alive without them. Not like he's sporting 20-inch biceps here, folks...
