File photo of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady walking to the sidelines after throwing an interception in the first quarter against the Seattle Seahawks during the NFL Super Bowl XLIX football game in GlendaleNew England Patriots soccer star Tom Brady denied on Wednesday he had destroyed his cell phone to avoid giving it to NFL investigators, saying the flap was "manufactured" to distract from "zero evidence" against him in the "Deflategate" scandal. Brady issued his statement a day after National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld a four-game suspension of the quarterback for his part in an alleged scheme to deflate footballs below league standards in the game that put the Patriots in the 2015 Super Bowl.

Rose of England plays his second shot on the fourth hole during the second round of the British Open golf championship on the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland(Reuters) - Justin Rose has produced sparkling form over the past three months after a slow start to the PGA Tour season and says he is "excited" about his title defense at this week's Quicken Loans National in Gainesville, Virginia. World number seven Rose clinched last year's tournament after a playoff at Congressional Country Club in Maryland, and knows he faces a very different test at a new venue over the next four days at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. "So, it's a new test ... I don't certainly put any pressure on myself this week." Rose brings excellent form to the PGA Tour event hosted by Tiger Woods, having posted four top-10s in 13 starts this season, including a victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April and a playoff loss at the Memorial Tournament in June.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell speaks during the 2015 NFL Draft on April 30, 2015 in Chicago, IllinoisIn the wake of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to uphold a four-game suspension of New England Patriots star Tom Brady, the league has asked police to watch Goodell's home in the region.
