SAN DIEGO – The NFL’s image has taken a beating in recent years with the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, ongoing questions about player head injuries, its stance toward domestic violence and, of course, “Deflategate.”

And now Ryan Leaf is calling the league out on it, Los Angeles Times reported.

Yes, the same man who saw his NFL dreams turn into a nightmare before getting into numerous run-ins with the law is out of prison and sharing what he thinks about the controversy surrounding the NFL’s investigation into whether the New England Patriots used underinflated balls during the AFC championship game on Jan. 18.

On Monday, the former San Diego Chargers quarterback posted to Twitter:

Leaf was referring to a Fox Sports report that the NFL has been provided video of an attendant taking game balls from the game officials’ locker room and into another room at Gillette Stadium before the contest against the Indianapolis Colts. The NFL is trying to determine whether wrongdoing by that individual occurred, Fox Sports reported.

    Ryan Leaf and “NFL” should NEVER be used in the same sentence. He is and will always be a disgrace to the National Football League. I glad he never received the Heisman Trophy. I hope he reads this.
