Colin Kaepernick defends Tom Brady, says let 'deflategate' go

Colin Kaepernick has Tom Brady’s back when it comes to 'deflategate.'

The San Francisco 49ers star quarterback got on Twitter to stand up for the embattled Brady on Friday afternoon, telling his nearly 750,000 followers to get over it.

Brady is currently awaiting his fate after an investigation into the incident during last season's AFC championship game found the quarterback “was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities” regarding the deflation of the footballs the Patriots used in a 45-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts.

Brady faces a possible fine and suspension by the NFL.

In his first public appearance since the Wells report came out, Brady said Thursday night he was still digesting the information and didn't have a reaction.
