NFL disses Tom Brady on social media?
Innocent oversight or direct shot? You be the judge.
On Sunday night, the NFL’s official Twitter account posted a photo about possible quarterbacks who could carry their team to Super Bowl 50 this season.
The NFL has deleted this tweet, in what I presume is an elaborate tribute to Tom Brady's rescinded suspension pic.twitter.com/SCg7VO509UArticle continues below ...

Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger, Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, Carson Palmer and Aaron Rodgers made the cut. Tom Brady did not.
That’s right; somehow, the guy who has won four Super Bowls was left on the cutting room floor for Carson Palmer, who has won a grand total of zero playoff games.
The NFL quickly deleted the tweet, which, of course, is useless, because it had already spread. Fans were already calling out the league for acting childish after losing in court to Brady over Deflategate.

@NFL NFL you need to put Tom Brady's manhandling of you aside and let it go. He is The GOAT. Don't hold a grudge
