On Friday, soon after Robert Kraft was charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution as part of a months-long sting operation in Florida, it seemed like there would be a bigger name involved.

ESPN's Adam Schefter went on SportsCenter and said Kraft wasn't the biggest name, and later went on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria and added some context.

"We got 25 names today, there are 175 more names coming," he said. "Some will just be regular people of names we don't know. There could be other names we do know."

Everyone began speculating who a bigger name could be?

Even Florida officials are wondering, as it appears they don't know who he's talking about.

“Nobody around here has any idea what [Schefter] is referring to," Mike Edmondson, a spokesman for the state attorney’s office, said to Deadspin.

As for Kraft, it seems likely a warrant for his arrest will be issued Monday, but he may not even need to appear in court at all.

Kraft denied any illegal activity through a spokesman Friday.
