Did Tom Brady cut his thumb scraping the NFL decal off his helmet?

Above: Last season. Below: Last week.
Yesterday, a story (if you can call it that) broke that Tom Brady played this preseason without the NFL logo on his helmet, something that is apparently standard throughout the league.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk suggested the possibility that Brady's cut thumb two weeks ago resulted from him attempting to scrape the sticker off with scissors.

If we're really going to take this ridiculous notion seriously, I'd just like to point out how impressive it is that his helmet appears to be totally free of scratch marks or excess sticker residue (click on the photo to get a closer look).  In order to pull it off, Brady must've enlisted the help of some team staffers.  This egregious rules violation is probably worth an eight-game suspension once the incriminating text messages come to light.
