As if the NFL free agency wasn’t exciting enough, two of the region’s top sports media members added to the fun on Friday afternoon on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger & Mazz show.
Host Mike Felger made some comments about ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss which prompted the longtime Patriots reporter to give the station a call.
“I heard you say my name and that you think that reporters who always say it’s the agents fault are ‘in the bag for the team,’” Reiss said.
“That was really what prompted me to call, Mike, because honestly, in the same sentence, you said Adam Schefter’s been reporting every bit of Patriots news. So what would I be ‘in the bag for the team’ for?
“The assumption is that I wouldn’t want to write anything negative on the team, so that they would feed me information. But if all the information is going to Schefter, well, I’m either an idiot … I guess I just don’t understand where you’re coming from.”
