So what’s the skinny with the Patriots having a videographer’s tape confiscated in Cleveland?
Here’s what we know: Kraft Sports Productions, which produces content for Patriots.com, does a “Do Your Job” series in which they track various team personnel at work.
This particular episode was supposed to feature an advanced scout. So the videographer — in a move that probably lacked foresight — was filming the scout when the Cleveland Browns hosted the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
The footage is aimed at showing the inner workings of what the scout does, but in no way was it a reprise of the sideline videotaping the Patriots were found guilty of engaging in back in 2007.
Some called that “Spygate.”
The NFL has reportedly confiscated the tape from Sunday. The Browns were alerted because it was their press box. The Bengals were not.
