Borges, citing unnamed "sources" close to Tom Brady, wrote Friday that Brady was ready to hold out of offseason work if the Patriots didn't give him a pay raise, comparable to the contract the 49ers just gave Brady's former backup Jimmy Garoppolo.
This is not the first time Borges has been handed down a suspension from a Boston-based publication.
"Nick in Boston" also texted his conversation with Borges over to Kirk and Callahan, who shared that exchange on Twitter.
Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston's reported that Brady's reported demand is inaccurate.
Sando had posted his piece to an online notes-sharing network used by Borges and other sports reporters nationwide.

The finding marks the first discovery to be announced in 2018, Ahram Online , an Egyptian news organization, reports. Archaeologists have been excavating the site for more than 170 years.
A WEEI listener called into the radio station Friday morning saying he had posed as Brady's agent Don Yee to supply false information to a Herald columnist. The Herald immediately took down the column and we've yet to have a response from Borges. The person who told Borges the lie says Borges was easy to fool. It's no longer available online.
Those texts above were all the sources Ron Borges needed to run a column this morning in the Herald reporting that Tom Brady plans to sit out all off-season activities unless he got himself a Jimmy G-type contract.
The Boston Herald has pulled Borges' column off its website and says it is investigating the matter.
Along with retracting the story, the newspaper apologized to Brady, Yee and the Patriots and announced the column has been suspended pending further review.
