Greg Anderson Brings Up Tom Brady’s Name In Statement

Brady’s Name Surfaces In
Statement From Bonds’ Trainer

Greg Anderson, the personal trainer of Giants LF Barry Bonds who is again being asked to testify before a grand jury investigating Bonds, in a statement to prosecutors “about his intentions to stay mum ... evoked the name of [Patriots QB] Tom Brady, saying the two had spoken over the phone but never made further contact,” according to Paul Elias of the AP. Anderson: “I had only one brief conversation with Tom Brady regarding a potential future workout. I never had another conversation with him and never discussed it with anyone.” Anderson’s attorney, Paula Canny, said that Brady’s name “appears along with ‘10 to 20’ other athletes that Anderson’s grand jury subpoena lists as people the trainer should be prepared to answer questions about.” Canny said that investigators “may have gotten Brady’s name from Anderson phone records seized by the government, though Anderson doesn’t refer to any other athletes in his brief statement.” Patriots Exec Dir of Media Relations Stacey James declined comment, saying, “I don’t have any information on it. I’m not going on hearsay” (AP, 8/16). In N.Y., Teri Thompson notes “several NFL players have emerged in the BALCO investigation ... but none with the star power of Brady. Even if Brady is only remotely tied to Anderson and BALCO, he could find himself subject to the questions of the government, as have numerous other athletes” (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/17).
