Court Reinstates Tom Brady’s NFL Suspension

Apr 25, 2016  •  Post A Comment

The NFL’s four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in connection with the “Deflategate” incident has been reinstated by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals, ESPN reports.

The panel determined that the league and commissioner Roger Goodell acted within the rules of the collective bargaining agreement in suspending Brady for four games.

“The case will undoubtedly continue through the legal system, but the current lay of the land suggests that Brady will miss the first four games of 2016,” the story notes.

The report adds: “Brady dropped his base salary from $9 million to $1 million as part of his new contract restructuring/extension, which means he’ll only lose $250,000 as part of a four-game suspension as opposed to $2.25 million.”
