FOXBORO, Mass. (WPRI) – New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is commenting on the saga known as “Deflategate.”

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told Sports Illustrated he doesn’t know when Ted Well will release his report, but the investigation is “getting near the end.”

The Patriots were accused of deflating footballs during the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Kraft maintains the team did nothing wrong and he’s focusing on the 2015 season.

He said, “I like to worry about things I can control. I know that there’s no smoking gun here, I chatted with our people. I think I said it pretty well the week before the Super Bowl. So we’re worried about the 2015 season, and that’s our focus.”

The Patriots will kick off the 2015 season on Thursday, September 10th.

There’s no word yet on who their opponent will be.
