Boston Herald pulls report that Brady wants deal equal to Garoppolo's

It wasn't even April Fools Day but one would think it was.  On Thursday night, Ron Borges of The Boston Herald broke a story that Tom Brady was prepared to sit out of the Patriots' organized team activities this offseason if he did not receive a contract with up-front money similar to what Jimmy Garoppolo will earn with the 49ers.

Several media members, citing a source, initially refuted the story. Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston was told the report was "off the reservation." 

Now, The Herald has pulled the story altogether, Kevin Duggy of Masslive reports. 

As explained on WEEI, Borges fell for a prank.

A caller who identified himself as "Nick from Boston" said Friday morning that Borges' phone number was available on the internet, so he texted Borges pretending to be Don Yee, Tom Brady's agent.
