Robert Kraft asked Goodell for first-round pick back

What do you do when the NFL strips you of your first-round draft pick? Ask for it back, of course.

That's precisely what New England Patriots GM Robert Kraft did more than a month ago, according to Mike Reiss of

Kraft didn't comment on whether he received a response from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, but he had plenty of other opinions on the matter:
"I personally believe that when the league made their decision, they did not factor in the Ideal Gas Law. They admitted that publicly. They had a full year of being able to observe Tom Brady play with all the rules of whatever the NFL was, and make any judgments there. We have laid it out pretty straightforward. And now it's up for them to decide."
